Scanning cows in counties Kilkenny and Waterford
We scanned 2 large dairy herds in Co. Waterford and Co. Kilkenny. Neither of these clients had to house cows during the wet summer months this year. The overall reproductive performance in those herds was the best they had seen for the previous 10 years. This would be in stark contrast to that seen in West Limerick and North Kerry. We have reports of clients having to sell their farm because they will not have enough money for feed this autumn and winter.
