Tom Goodwright & Son Kobe

THE GOODWRIGHT’S MILK 570 COWS AND RAISE ABOUT 120 REPLACEMENTS EACH YEAR ON THEIR SOUTH AUCKLAND PROPERTY. IT’S A FAMILY AFFAIR: OWNERS SID AND JENNY GOODWRIGHT, SHAREMILKERS TOM AND LAURA GOODWRIGHT WITH THEIR THREE CHILDREN: KOBE, NATE AND BELLA.

They have used the Queen of Calves programme for four seasons, but not consecutively. Beginning in 2008, and like many users, they paused to evaluate its performance on their farm. “When our first mob of heifers had completed their first-year’s milking, our Product Specialist, Brendon Moore, went over our production data with Dad, Mum and I and as soon as we saw the impact Queen of Calves had had on milk production, we re-instigated the programme straightaway,” Tom says.
 
“We used the Queen of Calves programme for a couple of years. Then we stopped. The following year we looked at the production data and saw the impact it was having with those cows. We now raise every calf on the programme.”
