Deeside Monitor Farm: Introductory video
Meikle Maldron, in the north east of Scotland, is run by Duncan and Claire Morrison who moved to the farm in 2016.
In total, Duncan and Claire farm 226 ha as a wholly suckler enterprise with 220 suckler cows comprising commercial Aberdeen Angus and Pedigree Aberdeen Angus and Stabilisers.
Of the 220 cows, they own 120 and lease a herd of 100 stabiliser cows. Most stabiliser bull calves are finished, some breeding heifers are sold at 12-14 months and the rest are sold as stores. The focus for this Monitor Farm is the simple system and utilising data to inform decisions.
