Thanks for all reply’s an excellent advise as always. Have a companion left in with her an will start wit odd treats an hopefully docility improves . Her mother is saler limo x and her father AI limo zag agin easy calver but she was runnnin with chx calfs an limx bull calf and full ch bull last summer. So a bit like falling into bunch of nettles it would be hard to tell which one stung you. I will let her show better springin an then maybe induce her to suit work schedule. Will keep ye posted on proceedings. Thanks again.
I’ve never registered a calf too a young heifer online, always had too ring BCMS direct. But never had to provide evidence, they’ve always just taken the tag numbers (usually with a comment like “are all women that keen near you?”)and the passport arrived later that week.
I said that it's not ideal to calve heifers at two if they're not well grown or under good supervision. And it's true that the emphasis on calving at two has grown during the last twenty years, so it could be classed as a modern fad.
Update: moocow alert 3.30pm yesterday. Pin bones still not fully gone. Had her in shed and she progressed as normal. put hand n her @7ish an all presented as should. 8pm still no sign of feet out despite lying out forcing for hour or more. Tried ropes on feet but second foot v tight to come out so decided vet safest option. Vet arrived and had good go at getting feet and we all agreed side safest option. Bull calf delivered out side an all’s well. Tubed calf an hav him suckin her today . Temperament has improved massively an is v fond of calf. So hopefully they make a nice little team. Thanks for all feedback.
Despite an average growing year for most crops, many growers managed to go above and beyond their predicted max yields, with Lincolnshire grower Tim Lamyman taking the top spots for his wheat yields and his world record breaking winter barley yield.
The highest cereal and oilseed yields achieved at harvest 2021 were announced at this year’s Yield Enhancement Network (YEN) Awards on Wednesday 24th November at the Croptec Show. With award presentations by Tom Bradshaw, Vice President of NFU, 24 farms took home the evening’s top awards for highest yield and highest potential yield achieved for wheat, winter and spring barley, oats, and oilseed. The 2021 winners came from all corners of the UK, as well as from as far afield as Finland and New Zealand.
