October A I Programme…2014

October A I Programme…2014

Although we have only recorded 7 inches of rain for the year, the decision was made to go ahead with our usual October Artificial Insemination Programme.

With paddocks feeling the effects of the dry weather, the group of 75 young heifers had been given  supplementary hay for a month or so in an effort to boost their nutrition levels.
