Why Focus on Youngstock

Youngstock rearing accounts for 20% of ​dairy farm expenses, making it the 2nd highest variable cost on farm.

Targeting 24​ month calving can improve performance​ and profitability:

  •  Greater lifetime yield ​
  •  Fewer replacements required ​
  •  Reduced feeding, housing and labour cost
  •  Quicker genetic improvement

By focusing on key areas (nutrition and management) of calf rearing significant performance improvements and cost savings can be made.
