Preparing for your heifers returning from grazing

Preparing for your heifers returning from grazing

Check list

  • Biosecurity

    Ensure you keep your returning heifers separate from the herd for at least seven days upon return. Monitor closely for signs of disease.
  • Plan your feed

    Returning heifers are going to put more pressure on paddocks that have already had poor growth through the summer. It is essential that the R2s are well fed through calving - what are you going to feed them?
  • Body condition score

    Make sure you get your R2s condition scored or at least weighed upon return. You need to know if they failed to hit growth targets.
