Summer Meeting 2023

Coleg Glynllifon, Caernarfon

Farm Manager Rhodri Owen, and James Holloway, detailed the proposed milking sheep enterprise. With 200 Lleyn ewes mated by laproscopic AI in the autumn and the aim of buying-in 100 Assaf ewes, the flock, when established, will be milked twice a day in a 24/48 De Laval parlour. Dr Prysor Williams and PhD student Joe Jones explained about the research work being carried out comparing mob grazing with continuous stocking. The farm tour was followed by a hog roast.
