With the cost of rearing a heifer recently quoted by AHDB as over £1800, the dairy heifer represents a huge proportion of cost incurred on the average dairy farm. Therefore it is crucial that early nutrition and management is right to get her into the milking herd as quickly as possible.
Find out about our new improved Calf Monitor programme that enables you to analyse the costs associated with heifer rearing to highlight areas that can be improved.
We also have a wide range of milks and calf pellets designed to give your calves the best possible start, click here to view our calf brochure:
