Replacement heifers are valuable animals, ensure they get an excellent start and meet body weight targets. A well grown heifer meeting the target weights is more likely to get in calf early, calve in better condition, produce better and get back incalf quicker than an underweight heifer.
SWVS have portable scales allowing the FarmPlus team to monitor weaners and heifers. If genetic information is available then individual weaner or heifer targets can be assessed rather than generic targets.
Individual programmes can be tailored to farm requirements. We can also provide other services at the time of weighing such as drenching, vaccinating and scanning. It is a very useful service if your weaners or heifers are at grazing, providing an independent assessment.
