A successful transition to Red Devon underway at Mt Cass Station, more stock needed in the coming year

Dave Woolridge reports he is pleased with the initial results as he makes the transition to Red Devon at his organic operations. Pleased enough to be escalating and accelerating the growth plans, so while he thinks the stock intake this year is covered, he wants to put the word out that next year he’ll be looking for even more – on the order of 100 heifers that have not calved, run with bull appreciated. The stock don’t necessarily need to be registered but they do need to be really good quality, particularly in temperament. A video of someone walking amongst the stock would be valuable for him to assess the temperament. He is looking for polled stock only and is happy with autumn calving stock as he has a herd split across autumn and spring calving. Mt Cass station is in Waipara in North Canterbury. .
