Last week I received an email from a client detailing the final load of cattle out of his sheds for the winter season.

The impressive kill sheet report, containing a mix of E and U grading heifers, was accompanied by a message from the farmer that 'at long last winter 2018/ 2019 is over - why do we keep doing this?'

These heifers were suckler bred, born on the farm, 20 months of age, met all requirements for quality assurance and averaged 357kg carcass.
