About us

Agricultural land

90 hectares of grassland. My machinery in agriculture consists of two tugs (70 and 110 hp all wheel drive), two platform cars (6 tons), a dump truck (8 tons), a silage cutter, a cultivator and a pasture mowers (4.5 meters).

Machinery and personnel

In my wage company I run a Claas forage harvester with 8 rows on maize header and 3 meters Pick Up, a forage cutter (5.20 meters), two maize drilling 4 and 8 rows with fertilizer application, two wide-bodied cars (42m³) and a gras distributor. And I like to work with temporary help from the neighborhood.

Cattle

Grown in the lowland bog between Hanover and Celle with +/- 60 red and black German Angus cows and aberdeen. I use for breeding and an embryo transfer. For the period of occupation (20 December) a week is inseminated.

Sale

I sell cows and calves, cattle-supporting, spreaders and bulls in private trading, and every year in February I exhibit on the Fleischrindertag Verden.

Calving and feeding

The calving season is from late September to December. From mid-April to November have all the cows to pasture. In winter only grass silage and mineral supplements will be fed.

The female weanlings go the whole year on pasture and are fed with round bales.

The bull weanlings are fed at home on slatted floor and some even on litter, each with a half grass and corn silage and 1.5 kg of concentrate feed (18% protein in energy level 3). By May all are fattened.
