After two and a half years working as the field officer for the Herd Improvement Centre (HICO) in Colac, we have returned to dairy farming, buying a 150 acre property at Kyabram in Northern Victoria. The property is set up for flood irragation and we look forward to the challenge of learning this type of pasture management.
During our time away from milking Roger Heath of Wanstead Jerseys and Noel’s parents have maintained a core of our Stud herd. We truly appreciate the Great job done on both farms looking after our girls, and its Great to have them all back together.
We hope to milk 130 cows while still carrying our young stock at home.
We have run Embryo programs from November until May each year. We have had international interest from South Africa, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, Indonesia and the U.S.A. and in recent years have sent embryos to U.S.A.,
China, New Zealand and South Africa aswell as bulls to India, and Malaysia.
