Features of our grazing scheme

  • A legal contract ensures the responsibilities of both parties are clearly defined. Both weaner, May to May Heifer, winter grazing and carryover cow contracts are available.
  • Having a third party involved gives protection to the dairy farmer and grazier and avoids hassles.
  • Vet supervised worry free grazing with animal health and feed management closely attended too. All animal health charges including drenching are included in the grazing fee.
  • All heifers are regularly monitored and weighed and reports are sent to the owner and grazier.
  • Target weights are set so the grazier is fully aware of what is expected of him or her.
  • It is an incentive scheme. Payments are based on weight gain, so there is a mutual benefit for the dairy farmer and the grazier.
  • Monthly automatic payments help spread the costs.
  • The breeding programme is supervised. Quality tested bulls provided if required and the option of a synchronised AI programme is available.
  • There is an option to have the heifers pregnancy tested and vaccinated before they go home.
  • Transport can be arranged at a reasonable rate.
