Award-winning producers offer tips for calf-rearing success.

In the latest episode of On the Farm, British Dairying visited Meadow Bank Farm near Shrewsbury in Shropshire, where Ruth and Steve Ashley milk 106 Holsteins through two Lely A4 Astronaut milking robots.

The Ashley’s won highly commended in the Youngstock Health and Welfare category and were commended in the High-Performance Dairy Farm at last year’s Cream Awards. They are achieving envious yields of 14,300 litres of milk and have a 12-month rolling pregnancy rate of 32%. Their nutritionist, Neil Howie from Agri-King, talks about how good-quality forage production lays the foundation stone for good cow health and production at Meadow Bank.

The video features Charlotte West, one of our clients, talking about the impact and help of REAL Success.
