Dairy (grass-based)

Hannah is a self-employed assistant herdswoman. She works on three dairy farms - two of which are run by her brothers, including the family farm.

The home farm has been in Hannah’s family for two generations and is run in partnership. Hannah's ambition, however, is to build her own dairy herd and secure her own farm tenancy.

She is fascinated with cattle breeding and wants to build the genetics of her herd. That means improving her cattle, generation by generation. This is a different approach to her brothers who run a ‘flying herd’, where they buy in replacement heifers and cows from other farms.

Hannah already owns 10 heifers (young females), five bulling heifers (which are old enough to be artificially inseminated for the first time) and three milking heifers (they have had their first calf and are producing milk).
