The Farm - Beckside Herd

cow grazing near Beckside farm

The Beckside herd is made up of home bred pedigree holstein cows which produce 2.3 million litres of milk per year.
Many years of selective breeding have produced high type, high yielding cattle with all replacements home bred using AI and embryo transfer. All our heifer replacements are genomically tested at a young age to allow us to identify the genetic potential of the animal and allow us to be more selective when choosing sires for artificial insemination. This results in better quality, healthier cows.

Exciting Dairy Expansion News!
After much discussion, the decision has been made to expand our dairy enterprise to accommodate more cattle. This includes building a new state of the art rotary milking parlour and cow housing facilities. The proposed development seeks to enhance the business at Beckside and secure its long-term viability.

As part of the planning process Robert and Patrick have visited some of the best dairy facilities in the country. They have spoken to the people who farm them to help ensure that the new development is both easy to use, efficient and puts the welfare of the animals at the forefront.

As part of the planning application which has been submitted, we have had a 3D flythrough of the new development created. Click on the video below to see our plans in 3D.
