Peter Cozens, wife Barbara and the team run an autumn block-calving unit, with the majority of their cross-bred NZ Friesian x Jersey cows calving within a 10-week period.  The aim is to have an easy-care grazing cow, and a self-feed silage system.  The simplicity of the system enables the workforce to strike a good work-life balance.
