There are 482 acres of arable land, whilst 360 acres are kept for silage and grazing during the summer months. There are 200 cows in the herd & a further 300 youngstock. All cows & calves are based at Boclair, housed in cubicle sheds during the winter months, & all heifers are artificially inseminated using high genomic sexed semen. In terms of classification, there are over 140 animals classified either VG or EX. The herd has a twelve-month rolling average of 12,312 litres at 3.77% butterfat & 3.22% protein.
