David Clarke Livestock, Co. Westmeath recently visited the farm of Thomas and Jack Butterly, Co. Louth.
The herd’s daily average was 28-litres from their spring-calved grass-based herd of 70 Fleckvieh cows. “These cows are on target for approximately 8,000-litres of milk with 610kgs of milk solids.”
David Clarke Livestock posted a video of heifers, which will calve down when they reach 24-months of age next February and March. “This is one of the best examples I have seen of quality beef and quality milk.”
