    All bots will be linked through t4c but physically it will be separate. Training fresh heifers/cows is a doddle in existing shed plus we have a pen for fresh cows 24hrs post calving in existing shed. New shed will be no frills or fancy gate systems, just a crush for treating/dry offs. Hopefully...

    One mix of tmr a day, one set of feed tables, heifers do receive a little extra in the bot for growth. Chap up here has a designated bot for lower yielders with 70 on it.

    What are my cows worth ?

    Seems that way, I've bought 50 ic holstein heifers this week, due late May through to early Sept. Average circa £1150. All holstein and ic to either sexed,Hereford or conventional b&w, my theory is the calf value will cover the cost of keeping them through to calving so if they stand me at...
