    Feeding heifers and cows in the same shed

    we have done just this in the past. Two things that concern me really here. One is using sexed semen and syncs, I’ve been advised it would be safest to serve them 2 days in a row so a considerable cost. Also the public perception of sync programs. Understandable in a cow because it’s better than...

    Feeding heifers and cows in the same shed

    Has anyone else got more yokes than heifers? Or could we fit yokes around a feed trailer and just yokes the bulk at the feed face and go in with a bag of cake for the trailer and yoke there?

    Feeding heifers and cows in the same shed

    might well be the only solution. Trying to move away from the reliance on bulls where possible. Beef ones are too lazy and I’ve had enough of the dairy ones going nasty

    Feeding heifers and cows in the same shed

    Looking for some ideas on how to make feeding work for both dry cows and bulling heifers. The plan is to use a loose housed shed to calve in before housing bulling heifers in the winter. We need to be able to serve heifers in the shed due to the locality of the handling system so the thought of...

    they knew what was going on. Need to rearrange the gateways so that we end up the right side of them as it’s lethal trying to cross back through them.

    it swings up and down a bit but seemingly to no ill effect. Ie it goes up when we go out. I try and balance it a little with what pits We’ve got open to account for grass or no grass. They’re not taking in a huge amount of grass very roughly 1.6-2kg of Dm going off what I adjust it down by on...

    Laying concrete price

    was that just as one pour? Seems very competitive compared to what we pay for cubicle sheds

    Been back in past 2 days. Hoping wind will pickup tomorrow and they’ll be back out Friday. Would have managed to be out yesterday and tomorrow if we’d sorted our fences to the fields were ploughing in the spring and got our troughs set up. It’s so wet here atm the water is just running straight...

    would be too larger an area for hay unless we try and clamp it alongside our forage rye as dry cow food and then pray to god it rains For a decent second cut

    really interested as to what you do here. Due to fences, wet ground and water supply we’ve got 100 odd Aves that haven’t seen sheep all winter and I can’t put heifers onto due to the previous owners “difficult situation with animals” meaning putting animals there wouldn’t be suitable. What would...

    I think that’s to do with branding. It can only be made in one place. Could be wrong

    you need a seg gate too if you want to drop the chalk. It would make milking seriously slow looking for numbers in the parlour.

    Leavs them alone then. An amount of the gain comes from the ability to fine tune your feed etc

    I think nedap would be the most used collar as it’s rebranded by lots of people. I think tag or bolus narrows your options a lot. There is huge amounts of data available through them but if your not in a position to utilise the data then a degree of the benefit is lost. Ie if your self feeding...

    shouting and screaming get you no where. It depends what’s happened but if they’ve broken something getting them to help fix it is always a brilliant lesson. People make mistakes though and things do go wrong form time to time.
