Charles Harrison  -  Practical opportunities to eradicate Johnnes disease in cattle

Dartington Cattle Breeding Trust

I am married to Serena and have 4 enthusiastic children: Freddie (7), Ollie (5), Hugo (4) and Tabitha (2). We live and work in Rudgwick, West Sussex.

I am a partner (of 8), in a family busines running 1,200 dairy cows over 1,900 acres in West Sussex. We have Holstien Friesian x Jersey crossbred cows, now introducing Norwegian Red to the mix. We are Autumn block calving, cubicle housed, self fed silage and flat rate parlour fed over three dairies. The heavy Weald clay allows grazing from March to October focussing on a low cost, simple system.
