Dairy cows

“We are currently milking around 180 British Friesian cows at the farm.”

Helen Browning

Our ‘Cues herd’ is based on the lower land just below the village. The milking parlour is next to the farm offices and very close to the pub, so it’s easy to pop down to see them.

The herd calves in the spring and autumn and the cows are milked twice a day, starting at just after 4am, and then again at around 3pm. Between them they produce around 1 million litres of milk a year.

Teo is the herd manager, ably assisted by Andy, and they take great pride in the high health status, and very low antibiotic use.

Organic Pigs = High Welfare

BANNED! These common practices are all banned under Soil Association Organic standards:

- Nose ringing - used to prevent pigs natural rooting behaviour

- Tail docking - pigs in confined spaces often bite each other’s tails, so non-organic producers dock tails to prevent this

- Farrowing crates - small metal cage only inches wider than the female pig, used around the time she gives birth to restrict her movement and prevent her from following maternal instincts.

- Routine use of antibiotics.
