Growth rates have decreased especially where a lot of wrapped bales removed

Eamonn Duggan had growth last week of 75 and this decreased to 50

Three cases of grass tetany during wet weather and meal was reintroduced to counteract this


Milk yields have decreased due to wet weather and strong grass (approx 10%)

David French had 88% submission after 3 weeks and 100% after 6 weeks. EBI of 130, 90 for fertility.
