Read more Join us on this webinar to learn how to ensure a smooth transition management in an autumn block calving herd, and how to better use data to make informed business decisions. Buscot Farm has been in the Kinch family for 80 years and is managed by Phil Kinch in partnership with his wife and parents. The farm's dairy production activities are closely managed by Herd Manager Shane MacNamee, who operates extremely tight control over their autumn block calving herd of cross-bred cows. Based on the Oxfordshire-Gloucestershire border, just off the M4 near Swindon, the farm consists of 1,400 hectares - a fifth of which is committed to dairy, including a 67-hectare grazing platform, with the remainder given over to arable. It has been a Strategic Dairy Farm since May 2018. The herd is currently made up of 360 autumn calving and 80 spring calving cows, with an increasing number of Norwegian Red and Fleckvieh cross, achieving 8,500 litres of milk per cow per year with 4.3% butterfat and 3.47% protein mix, milking twice per day.
