Gareth Scott reports on a successful day in York.
Buitelaar, Harbro & Alltech, teamed up and presented at David Boake’s beef farm in York, guests travelled from the Eastern Counties, Dorset, Wales and Aberdeenshire.
On farm 450 Black & White bulls are finished each year within Buitelaar’s award winning supply chain. The focal point of this event was to showcase to current and prospective beef farmers the opportunities with feeding and farming black & white bulls. Buitelaar were on hand to discuss how the selection of the correct type of calf to enter the supply chain is essential, while Harbro discussed the feed requirements of these young bulls and how their product Maxammon allows young bulls to be fed high cereal diets while reducing the risk of accidosis. Alltech also engaged guests in the requirements of the animals rumen and its importance in promoting high daily live weight gains. In true Buitelaar fashion guests were treated to and very much enjoyed some roast Rose Veal Sirloin for lunch, before departing for home.
