We're thrilled for Graham and Amy Morton for being crowned as Northern Dairy Farmers of the year for 2018.
The award recognised their embracing of innovation and technology as they drive for more efficient yields and great productivity.
Graham has been using Axcelera-C on his calves for over 2 years and has adapted how he uses it to accelerate his calf performance:
"All calves are guaranteed to receive a minimum of 7.5 litres of colostrum within the first 24 hours of life, to ensure the best possible start. After a few days the calves are reared on milk replacer through automatic feeders and are part of an accelerated weaning programme using AB Neo’s product Axcelera-C, which sees calves weaned early at 35 days of age. Whilst getting the milk pellets calves are also fed the cows milking ration TMR from a few days of age and starter pellets and the calves are full of vitality and bloom, with big savings on milk replacer input costs."
