It will give dairy and beef calves excellent bloom and growth rates on bucket and computer feeders and from once to twice a day feeding.

Genetics from TAG-UK

TAG-UK will from November 2017 not be supplying semen. We thank all of our customers who have supported us throughout the years, and wish you every success with your TAG-UK progeny.

Potential for a youngstock shortage?

There has been a reported rise in the use of beef semen used across the dairy herd. Since the start of the milk price decline back in June 2015, the popularity of Beef semen used over Conventional Holstein semen has risen significantly (+7.6%) between 2014-2015.

So will we see an influx of beef calves on the ground in March 2016? Quite possibly and this is only set to increase monthly for the foreseeable.

While the dairy herd size has increased, as does the need for herd replacements. Farmers although having maiden heifer’s incalf to sexed semen will see that that alone will not bridge the gap for total replacement rate. With the milkers incalf to beef, there is predicted to be a shortfall in dairy young stock.
