Weaning Tips from the Green Acres Farms


With calves being weaned on dairy calf to beef farms across the country, Teagasc Green Acres programme advisors Sean Cummins & James Fitzgerald join Catherine Egan on this week’s Beef Edge podcast with top tips on weaning, advice for the year ahead and an update on the farms.

Firstly, Sean has an update on the calves’ performance in the Green acres programme this spring. He highlights the key targets up to weaning and the weaning process. Sean also discusses the herd health plan of the calves to date and key targets for grazing season ahead.

James discusses the performance of the weanlings over the winter and over the spring so far. He also reviews the slaughter performance of the stock in 2020.

Sean and James conclude with three main tips that the farmers will be focused on for the coming weeks and months. For further updates click here:
