About the Farm

The main cow shed

Holly Green Dairy Farm’s herd of 500 Holstein cows are housed in free stalls with sawdust on mattresses.

The cows are milked in a 34:34 herringbone parlour with an automatic backing gate.  Calving takes place mainly during the summer and autumn.

The cows are fed on a diet of grass silage, maize silage, citrus peel and concentrates including soya hulls, rapeseed (canola) meal, wheat feed, wheat distillers, molasses and minerals.
