When: January 17th 2018 11:00 to 13:30

Following on from our meeting in spring, we’d like to invite you back to the Pullin’s family farm to discuss:

  • Evaluating your rearing – what are the strengths and weakness of your heifer rearing system?
  • The economics – do you know your rearing costs?
  • Milk powder calculator
  • Final results from two years of monitoring national bulling weights and growth rates
