WELCOME TO LOFORD HOLSTEINS
..... in pursuit of perfection.....
At South Yeo House our main aim has to be the same as almost every other dairy farmer in the country - efficient milk production. However our first love is breeding elite pedigree holsteins.
We are just beginning in the big scheme of things as we have only been buying into and breeding top end genetics since 1995. We aim to consign to 1 or 2 sales every year with young stock.
By the time we finished in 2003 the herd was competing at the top in the South West, winning the devon herd competiton and enjoying lots of success at shows.
The herd is currently averaging 11,785kgs @ 4.42F & 3.13P with a rolling herd cell count of 54.
Cows - 19EX 16VG
Heifers - 10VG 2GP
Average Classification 89 points. (inc heifers)
Having recently undergone huge changes due to health reasons we are once again in the process of rebuilding numbers. We currently milk 47 cows but with heifers calving all the time we hope to be between 50 and 60 this winter.
Sire lines are of huge importance to us with the cow familes being virtually 100% PI. Sires are chosen on type, cow family and PLI with fat and protein % playing a considerable part. The cows have to be strong but have that certain "showyness" and be able to milk to profitable standards. On top of this we aim to have 100% VG or EX cows and GP or better heifers at any one time.
We hope you have fun as you look around the website and look forward to seeing you at shows and sales in the future.
