Morayshire Monitor Farm Meeting - February
The fundamentals of breeding and rearing top class livestock will be discussed at the coming Morayshire Monitor Farm meeting on 13 February. On the arable side there will also be a session on how best to manage new spring barley varieties this coming season.
The meeting will begin with a demonstration of the Moocall calving sensor which they have been trying out at Corskie Farm. The demo will be followed by a discussion on getting ready for calving and lambing led by members of the management group and there will be a chance to have a look at the bulls Iain will soon be putting up for sale at Stirling Bull Sales.
After lunch the group will be joined by the Chief Executive of the British Simmental Society, Neil Shand, who will discuss estimated breeding values (EBVs) and how best to use them as a tool when buying cattle.
Ian Lindsay, an agronomist from Syngenta, will take the group through how best to manage some of the newer barley varieties.
The Monitor Farm meeting will take place on Corskie Farm, Garmouth, IV32 7NN, on Tuesday 13 February from 11am until 3pm. To book your place (and lunch) please contact Samantha Stewart (contact details below)
