Our Spring block spring calving cross bred herd of dairy cows was establish in 2010 on a purpose built green field site. The cattle graze the paddocks surrounding the purpose built dairy building which includes a 70 point rotary parlour, collecting yard and stand off pads.
 
2018 is our ninth year of production and we are delighted at how the cows are responding to their nine years at Glenapp. 2018 will be a record breaking year for us , despite the late spring and dry summer our girls have responded well and we will sell more milk this year than ever before.

The herd is made up of  850 mainly New Zealand and Irish Friesian Cross bred cows which are currently being bred to Irish Friesian . Our aim is to have a herd of crossbred cows which will efficiently and effectively convert our grass  into high quality milk.
 
Calving starts on the 10th of February and cows are dried off on the 20th of December, seasonal help is employed from February to June, so if you are interested why don’t you drop us an email.
