With another year over, can you answer five simple, but hugely important questions about your herd?

  • What did it cost to produce 1kg of liveweight on your farm in 2019?
  • How many kilograms of liveweight were sold this year?
  • What was your average price per kilo?
  • What was your average weaning weight and how many calves were weaned from cows that calved in spring?
  • What did it cost to keep a cow on your farm?
  • Unfortunately, not enough farmers know the answers to such questions. Yet they are fundamental to running an efficient, profitable suckler herd.
