The target date to start calving on the farm was the 1 August, however some heifers in-calf to Angus bulls had a shorter gestation period, so the first calves arrived in the last week of July.

Calving has slowed down in the last few weeks, with almost 90% of the herd now calved. No stock bull was used, so all calves are by AI bulls. A mix of Angus, Limousin, Salers and Charolais sires were used on the herd this year.
