Great success at the Youngstock Group Meeting!

Our Youngstock group met on Tuesday 8th November for a farm visit to discuss heifer fertility. The meeting was a great success with some great discussion surrounding the anonymous benchmarking and some interesting discussion points relating to synchronisation, use of the bull and many other things. We’d like to thank the Rogers family at Longmoor farm for hosting us and for cooking the soup to keep us all warm on a freezing day!!
