East Sussex dairy maximise value of beef calf crop with Male SexedULTRA 4M.

Lime End Farm is a 600 cow family run dairy in East Sussex on an Autumn calving system producing high quality milk for Arla. Targeted use of male sexed beef semen has helped the herd to maximise the value of their calf crop coming through.

“We are always looking to improve performance and profitability on the farm, and when the opportunity arose to try Male SexedULTRA 4M and improve the marketability of our beef calves, I thought I’d give the product a try. Conception rates with the Male SexedULTRA 4M Blue are exceeding those of conventional semen (currently averaging 61%) and a higher price for bull calves from our buyer has made the switch a no brainer.” Matt Ford Lime End Farm
