Our stock bulls went out with the cows on 23 May, so this is the eighth week of breeding. We have 86 cows and replacement heifers for breeding this year and they are being served in three groups.

The cows were being served in two groups of 37 at the start of the breeding period. We put our most fertile and best milking cows in one group to our Simmental bull, with the aim of getting replacements.
