As the most critical stage in our supply chain, the correct and dedicated calf rearing guarantees our calves have the best possible start in life, ensuring optimum health and performance throughout the animals' lifecycle. Our select group of calf rearers have a highly skilled and respected job that requires commitment, hard work and a passion for calves.
All of our calf rearing units are visited and audited regularly whilst calves are on farm. We use Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to score units on key welfare issues, such as the provision of calf health, fresh straw, feed, water and ventilation.
As a growing business, we occasionally look to add to our highly valued group of Calf Rearers. If you are interested in rearing calves for an innovative and supportive, family farming business, please get in touch.CALL US
