The Mawley herd are mostly home-bred pedigree Holstein cows, chosen for their docile temperament and natural capacity to produce milk.  They graze on our pastures in the summer months and are housed during the cooler weather.  They are milked on an Automatic Milking System that allows them to chose how often they are milked, 24 hours a day.  The heifer calves join the dairy herd when they are around 2 – 3 years old and all bull calves are reared here for beef.
