Beef calves from the dairy herd leaving the most profit from dairy in Northern Ireland

Calls in Co Derry reveals Angus cross Holstein calves making 300 pounds at 7 – 8 weeks of age having been weaned off milk replacer.

These clients revealed that current milk price is not in its own right profitable because of relatively high cost of production in indoors winter milk production system. However, the amount of calves that will come to market in February and March from our grass based milk production system will leave a incredible surplus of calves on the market.
