Wicklow Calf Company Secures Contract for 1,000 Heifers in Lebanon
A spokesperson from Wicklow Calf Company confirmed the recent dispatch of multiple truckloads of maiden and in-calf heifers to Lebanon, utilizing European ports and sea routes from Spain and Croatia. The contract, spanning 1,000 heifers, is set to commence selections on Tuesday, December 19.

Customers from the Lebanese market are scheduled to visit Ireland on December 19 to assess the livestock and export facilities firsthand.

Wicklow Calf Company revealed that several North African countries have expressed keen interest in procuring Irish dairy breeding stock. The heightened demand is attributed to disruptions in the European market caused by recent Bluetongue outbreaks, restricting the availability of stock from affected countries.

To meet the requirements of the contract, Wicklow Calf Company and South East Dairy Stock are actively acquiring both maiden and in-calf dairy breeding stock. Interested farmers looking to contribute to this endeavor can get in touch with either Wicklow Calf Company or South East Dairy Stock.

Synlait is in big trouble with losses mounting up and no easy answers, says Keith Woodford. For much of the past 20 years, Synlait was an entrepreneurial player in the New Zealand dairy industry, with a strong focus on growth. For a long time, it seemed to be doing everything right.
