Drying off has started on the Greenfield Farm in Kilkenny. The first 25 cows were pulled out of the herd on Friday and another 30 will be selected for drying on Monday. The procedure on this farm is they get a tube and sealer. This year Cepravin dry cow tubes and Boviseal sealer are being used. It’s a cost of €10.50 per cow, but the protection, cure and seal the combination gives have worked well for the last number of years.
