We take great care to monitor the health and growth of each dairy heifer grazing with us. We weigh our heifers every month, and record health treatments.

Every month we report on heifer growth toward our planned individual target weights, and provide a full stock reconciliation.

We offer excellent value for money, our MDM (modeled dry matter) payment system takes into account the unique feed requirement of your growing heifers and links financial reward with achieving planned targets.
