What makes a good
UK grazing cow?
UK farmers, the Grangers have been working with LIC for 18 years to create cows that
best suit their system. They helped us with our latest video "What makes a good UK grazing
cow?” which can actually be related to most pasture-based dairy systems all over the world.

Harness The Power

The Art of Mastering
a Game Plan
Read how one New Zealand farmer puts his tight calving
interval squarely down to Short Gestation Length (SGL) semen,
and how he's seen plenty of his cows calve at 265-268 days
- substantially earlier than the standard 282 days.
Make Sure you Draw
the Short Straw
With bulls selectively bred to shorten gestation length
up to 10 days, you can shorten calving, shorten time not
in milk and shorten future empty rates.
