300+ FRIESIAN KIWI CROSS COWS

At Splattenridden we have over 300 Friesian Kiwi cross cows grazing grass for 9-10 months of the year. making the most of home grown forage.

This combination produces a cow with good hybrid vigour as the best traits from both breeds are combined to produce a superior, more efficient cow – such as feed efficiency, high milk solids, exellent fertility and calving ease.

AUTUMN-CALVING SYSTEM

We use an Autumn-calving system here to rear our cows. The systems allows for calving outdoors, at a more favourable time or year.

Outdoor calving means our calves are better able to utilise grass once turned out. Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight all year round.

FRESH MILK AND CHEDDAR SUPPLY

The combination of hybrid cattle and the favourable, autumn calving systems means our cows and are able to produce the highest quality of fresh milk.

This fresh milk is then used to make Cathedral Chedder at Davidstow.
