Aiming to calve at 24 months has been proven to be the most economic way of rearing heifers, reducing feed, labour, breeding and overhead costs resulting in increased milk in the tank.
Studies show that heifers that calve at 24 months will produce 3,724 litres more milk than those calving at 26 months.
Ensuring heifers are the correct weight and height at bulling will increase chances of conception.
