The last cow calved on Tullamore Farm on Friday 24 April and this brings an end to a pretty successful 2020 calving season. There were 96 cows calved and 94 calves gone out to grass with the herd. Three calves were lost and a set of twins brought up the final figure. There are currently three groups of cows grazing on the farm.

The only negative was the loss of two cows in the last two months. One was a heifer that put out her calf bed after calving and didn’t recover, while the other was a cow that punctured her calf bed during the calving process. It’s never good to lose a cow and to lose two in the one season is a big blow.
