Included within this video is an insight into the farm’s technical performance against the optimal dairy system Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) and details about their long-term vision for the business.

Gareth and David also take a critical look at the areas that have been identified for improvement over the next few years.

These include exploring expansion opportunities and maximising the cow and heifer performance by looking at:
• Youngstock housing
• Calf Health
• Improving fertility
• Improving mobility within the herd
• Maximising the use of genetics
• Maximising forage
