Management notes


The recent dry spell has helped get work up to date but now crops need a period of kind growth weather to enable them to build their yield potential, writes Andy Doyle.


Suckler farmers should make an effort to get on top of dehorning in spring-calving herds, writes Kieran Mailey.


Aidan Brennan advises farmers against using blanket progesterone treatment during the breeding season.


Another week of low growth is creating numerous challenges at farm level, with lamb performance starting to suffer and issues such as mastitis and grass tetany in ewes and orf in lambs, writes Darren Carty.
