At lodge farm we milk two times a day, 5:30AM and 3:30PM. It takes 2 hours to milk 200 cows through a 14/28 herringbone parlour. .

‘Project Calf’ an animal activist group has published all the UK dairy farmers postcodes advising fellow activists to freely walk onto peoples private property, providing them legal advice should they bump into a farmer/police/security on what their rights are. 
No surprise, due to this activist group having little understanding of animal health and welfare they have forgotten to educate about safety procedures for the animals! 
No warning of the importance of disinfecting themselves before approaching vulnerable baby calves that are developing their immune system, or the potential risks of walking around one farm then onto another exposing animals to different bugs potentially making the animals very ill. 
Most of these farmers on this map will provide tours for visitors and school groups, but they follow a protocol. These are British dairy farmers who follow the highest welfare standards in the world. While activist want their videos edited with droll music for social media, UK farmers want their animals and property safe. .

Looking from a different angle... Straight out the feeder wagon and onto the Feedstar conveyor belt. It takes some skill to control the speed the feeder wagon dispensers while controlling the speed  the conveyor belt slides along the feed passage. 
I’ve had many messages asking where we bought this system, it is a German company called Eder.

Calf coats are not essential but it helps the animals concentrate putting all their energy into growing rather than keeping warm. .

It’s fantastic that our local media is excited to share with our consumers the latest technologies we are installing on farms. I’m fortunate to farm on an Island where many still have family connections with farm life so our customers value the Islands high welfare and health status, they are reassured by our attitudes towards investing in farm infrastructure and latest technological innovations. .

Calves are born without an immune system, it’s paramount we feed colostrum (mums first milk) to calves in their first few hours of life, as it provides immunity to potential diseases. 
The quantity and timing of when we feed will determine the animals future health. 
We test colostrum with a brix refractometer testing its quality (Immunoglobulin content).
When a cow producers high quality colostrum whatever is not fed to their calf is collected and stored in a freezer, so when we have a cow with poor colostrum we know we have good quality stored on farm. Our management procedures at Lodge Farm ensures all animals have the best possible start in life. #happyandhealthy .

Article in tonight’s Jersey Evening Post. Land and animal care perspectives need to be told by people in the industry, not by activist groups with hidden financial agendas. 
They saying goes “Farming is mighty easy when your plough is a pencil and you’re miles away from the field”. .

This FeedStar system was the solution to many of our problems. We wanted to increase cattle loafing area without the extravagant cost of a new construction and we wanted our cows to have fresh feed in front of them 24/7 while housed inside. In our old system cows had less space to walk around due to a large feeding passage for the tractor to go down and we had a member of staff pushing up the feed 3 to 4 times a day. Other benefits with the system; less noise, no dust or exhaust gases in the shed. When the conveyor belt returns, all leftover feed is collected and a fresh mixed ration is then distributed. We have seen higher nutritional intake‘s and higher milk outputs! Happy cows and happy farmers! .

We’re all smiles at Lodge Farm, we’ve finished Tuberculosis and Brucellosis testing for another year. Although the Island is free of both diseases we test for it as it’s an EU requirement to sell cattle off Island. Pictured here our vet @jerseygirlkate is taking blood samples. .

Our cow Fitbits have arrived!!!! 🐮 📲🖥
We are so excited to have this new technology on farm, each cow will be provided with a CowManager sensor (clips onto cows ear tag). This new tech can track individuals Fertility, Health, Nutrition and have the add-on option of Location, so if you can’t find a cow in the herd your phone will direct you to where they’re grazing.  Pretty cool stuff!
Stay tuned! .

Our youngstock graze outside all year round. We feed them mineralised calf rearer pallets as a good nutritional diet is key to providing animals with good health, growth and performance. 
Our aim is to raise fit cows for production and longevity! 
When you feed a group of heifers nuts in the field as soon as they recognise your van coming down the drive, they start charging for you... and if you haven’t distributed the feed before they reach you, you’re going to get your feet trampled on or a head-but in the derriere! 🥴

Pineapple hair - we all have bad hair days. 
Have you heard of Veganary? It’s a month where vegans post pictures of their meal plans showing exotic fruits and vegetables on their plates  that are shipped across the world and caption #savingtheplanet. If you’re not a agriculturalists/ horticultualist many fail to realise what environmentally friendly food is #localproduce. We hear studies of how our cows are contributors to carbon emissions via methane... What you fail to hear is through improved genetics and using science to plan our cattles diets we have halved carbon emissions being more environmentally sustainable than ever before... and not forgetting to calculate levels of oxygen output grazing land gives back to the environment!
.
.
Farmers are some of the best environmentalist around, maintaining hedge row, correcting soil deficiencies and promoting wildlife in their area. We acknowledge we are farming today while protecting soils for the future, for the next generation.
.
.
With the ever-growing population never before have farmers needed to utilise the land to feed so many mouths, when someone not in the industry remarks everyone can live off the land on a vegan diet they’re incorrect, you need certain soil types and climates to grow different fruits and vegetables, A large proportion of Britain’s agricultural land is rocky Mooreland or wetland, impossible to grow crops and only suitable for grazing livestock. This is why agriculture should be compulsory in the school curriculum, know how your food is grown!
