Are you involved in contract rearing dairy heifers?

If so, we'd love to hear from you.

Teagasc are conducting a project on contract rearing in the spring and would like to get in touch with any dairy farmers who are sending their heifers to be reared by a contract rearer or farmers who are providing contract rearing services.

The project team will be comparing health and production outcomes between heifers that are contract reared and those that are not.

Anyone with an interest, please email your contact details to contractrearing@teagasc.ie for more details on the specific study.
