Jersey Thread - For all things Jersey

Never used coats on ours, always made sure there’s plenty of straw and no drafts
They have plenty of straw,but this part of north Staffordshire the wind seems to never stop blowing so drafts can be a problem.got them all coats now as Bald Rick said twenty pounds is cheap insurance.

Bought two yearlings by ribblesdale beaumont, both very dark, one has just calved her 3rd, red and white fr bull calf, so must be some 'red' colour in the breeding, they were both sold as pure jerseys.

Daughter has a few Jerseys and we struggle to find bulls that transmit chest width, most studs are full of narrow chested poor uddered bulls, not the sort of animal that most would want. Which bulls are others using TIA

What do you think of them?
Only had two that the Danes had used on heifers we imported. One was a bull & the other has left the herd.

Viking Genetics change bull lists faster than I change my pants but anything with an NTM of over 20 is good to go so I wouldn't have a problem using him if he ticks the boxes you're looking for

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.
