Robert's farm has an opening farm cover of 740kg DM/ha.
Calving has unfortunately started with three abortions.
There are two calves on the ground, with the bulk (29) due in February and March.
Robert hopes to buy a group of bulling heifers in this year to expand the herd.
There was 100kg liveweight difference between these bulls in December, despite being born on the same day and by the same sire.
The cow herd is a mixture of continental, Salers and Hereford genetics.
