“We currently use Genus ABS test British Blue sires on our non breeders, and use a selection of different sires at one time to spread the risk. The calves are thrifty and are easy to manage. The calving survey form is clear and easy to fill out. To date, we’ve had some great calves by Genus ABS test beef sires.”Andrew Gilbert. Newcourt Barton Farm, Devon, milking 500 cows
“Since signing up to the Beef Cornerstone Program, I have been very happy with the calves we have had from the Beef Cornerstone bulls. We finish our beef calves on farm, so its good to see how the Beef Cornerstone sires compare to the proven sires with calving ease and growth rates. It has also given us a chance to get an early heads up on some good bulls which would fit into our system.”Matthew Sowray, Brook House Farm, Yorkshire. Milking 150 Holstein’s on AYR Calving System.
