Beef to the heels like a Mullingar heifer!

Having gained invaluable experience in the beef production heartlands of West Clare and North East Cork, I am in an insuperable position to bring that expertise, dedication and skill to your beef operation irrespective of size. Whether yours is a suckler or dry cattle enterprise or both, I can help your unit to realise it's fullest potential. From neonatal (baby) calf diarrhoea (scour) to stock bull lameness and fertility issues, I have the knowledge to optimise health, welfare and productivity in your herd. 

For ration evaluation for your drystock, I use RUMNUT, a nutrition software package to evaluate the diet fed. I regularly use silage and soil analysis reports to accurately assess silage quality and any potential trace element issues, respectively. 

We are all acutely aware that profitable suckler production is contingent upon delivering one healthy calf per cow per year. I use my Easi Scan 3 scanner on routine fertility visits. Cows that are not in calf can be identified at the earliest possible opportunity. Cows that are pregnant can be assessed for predicted calving date. Twins and the sex of the calf can be assessed if one scans early enough!

Having worked in an intensive beef and suckler based practice in Kilrush, Co. Clare for 2 years, I have considerable experience in the care and resuscitation of weak calves, especially following caesarean section. At the height of the calving season, it was not unusual for me to perform 25-30 caesarean sections per week. The majority of these procedures were performed upon Belgian Blue cows and I have gained enviable experience in the successful execution of this highly specialised, technically demanding but immensely rewarding procedure! It is most satisfying to see a live and vigorous calf on the ground following a timely caesarean section; a calf that may not have survived otherwise!
