Calves wanted all breeds


Calves wanted direct from dairy farms. Ideally in large groups or large enough to work for transport. Continentals, natives and black and white bulls. Good prices paid. And no commission or haulage to pay.


I can do a group of 100 immediately. They are out of smaller type jersey x fresian cows but decent calves. I've just posted an add with a few pics. I'm in Devon
I did see your advert. What is the average weight of your cows? As in how small is smaller? I realise your not asking a lot for them. Just we tend to push them hard young and I’m not sure they’d be the right things to respond to that possibly.


Where are you. Mine are reared very extensively without housing or concentrates but I have plenty of yearlings and older ones you could see
Mid Cornwall. Thank you for the offer but I’m not sure they’ll fit what I want. Or rather my farming practises are probably incorrect for what they need to be profitable.
I imagine I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know but the large beef finisher near your part of the world, buys those types for rearing he might be worth a shout. Failing that I bet they’d make the money you want at market. Things are selling well and they look very well presented in your pictures.

Early moves to target wild oats

Growers and agronomists now face the dilemma of an early application to remove competition from emerged wild oats, or holding off to allow more weeds to germinate.

Syngenta grassweeds technical manager, Georgina Wood, urges Axial Pro treatment as soon as conditions allow, once weeds are actively growing.

“That offers the chance to control wild oats more cost effectively at lower rates, whilst there is still the flexibility to tailor application rates up to 0.82 l/ha for larger or over wintered weeds and difficult situations.

“The variability of crops and situations this season means decisions for appropriate Axial Pro rates and application techniques will need to be made on a field-by-field basis,” she advised.
