Newford Farm, the 100-cow suckler-to-beef herd located in Athenry, Co Galway, is in a good position to realise a target of finishing 100% of heifers off grass.

This is in sharp contrast to 2018, when heifers were sold at this stage of the year as stores. This decision was taken in 2018 due to the farm having insufficient land to graze all animals.
