DAVID GIDDINGS // MEADOWSLEA, CANTERBURY
In 1929 his family founded the Meadowslea Romney Stud, which now includes Kelsos and Romdales as well as Texel Romney.
700 ha farming a total of 10,000 stock units
– 300 cows includes 80 first-calvers
– 50 bulls are sold at the stud’s annual winter sale, with a further 100 bulls sold in the spring
– Business runs approximately 700 head of cattle
ECLIPSE has been used on all young stock for three years. “ECLIPSE hits Cooperia – we give them two treatments, one at weaning and another as they go onto the winter feed crops, and they’re right.” David started using ECLIPSE pour-on on the recommendation of Aorangi Vets.
