Scots herd nominated for Gold Cup

THE Coopen herd at Palnure, Newton Stewart, has been nominated for the finals of the dairy Gold Cup competition organised by National Milk Recording and the Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers.

Manager Peter Bull, who is embarking on a conversion to organic production, aims to double the herd size over the next five years and achieve average yields of 10,000 litres.

He milks 250 cows three times a day and last year recorded yields of 11,027kg at 3.68% fat and 3.22% protein.
