Calving Update 2015

The calving season is now complete in the suckler herd and stock bulls were introduced to the bulling heifers on the 22nd June and have now been in with the group for nearly ten weeks. The remaining stock bulls entered their respective groups a fortnight later and will be with the cows for a similar length of time. Grass growth was a little restricted with the drier weather in June and July and consequently we have had to feed a little hay to keep the condition on the cows during their bulling period. We will be looking to sow the winter forage crops in the coming week which will provide the necessary feed to keep the whole herd outside throughout the coming winter.
