It has taken many years of listening & learning & improving our grazing management (plus a nice spring).
It has taken even more patience with heavy selection for genetics that can perform without creep feed, but this year we achieved a goal.
The Bentley Suffolk 8 week weights in 2020 averaged 390g/day which is higher than the last year we lambed in January and fed ad-lib creep!! Top 10% growing at over 550g/day.
The power of genetics and selection pressure!
