To supplement output and gross margin, the farm plan also includes the purchase of 50 bulls to finish under 16-months.
12kg of ration is fed to the bulls.
The bulls go on to a full finishing diet as soon as they reach 480kg.
Slurry had been spread and fertiliser was applied and both of these were still visible in the sward due to a lack of rainfall.
