This year's Gold Cup Open Day takes place at Metcalfe Farms and is hosted by brothers Philip, David and Brian Metcalfe.
Philip manages the dairy herd on 525 hectares of the farm’s 1,300ha. Metcalfe Farms were crowned as this year’s Gold Cup winner at Dairy-Tech due to their high level of focus in all areas of the dairy business, enabling the farm to grow from the results and profits generated whilst achieving a high level of health and welfare in their cows and youngstock.
The new BouMatic parlour was installed 2.5 years ago, as well as additional cow accommodation. This allowed the business to increase the size of the herd from 900 to 1,300 cows in just two years.
