The Mawley herd, named after their home farm, Mawley Town, are predominantly 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 cold wet weather. They are milked on an Automatic Milking System, manufactured by Fullwood in Shropshire, 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.
We passionately believe that happy, well cared for cows produce the best quality milk – as they say, the proof is in the pudding! Our cows are cared for by a team of expert herdsmen who have a wealth of experience in cow care and animal husbandry.
