Past Event - booking closed

Plume of Feathers, Chapel Terrace, Mitchell, Newquay, Cornwall


If you’re considering a move to autumn block calving, join us for this meeting to hear why block calving herds have potential cost savings of 1-4ppl over all year round systems.

We’ll explore why it’s important to review your business to understand whether your current production system is right for you. A panel of established autumn calving farmers will share their experience running both low input and high input herds.

The meeting will cover:

  • Business impacts – yield, seasonality, cash flow, contracts
  • Infrastructure & physical limitations – grazing, feed systems, housing, handling & parlour
  • People – managing peaks and troughs in labour demand and at busy times
  • Herd management – breeding, fertility, productivity and young stock
  • Targets for physical and financial performance

Who should attend? Anyone interested in autumn block calving systems.
