Niall and Angus Jeffrey at Bielgrange, Dunbar

The Jeffrey family, long standing customers of Dods of Haddington, run two spring calving herds over three farm units. The 300-hectare lowland Bielgrange farm and 240-hectare upland Weatherly farm run 250 Aberdeen Angus cross sucklers. The business also contract farms 160 Aberdeen Angus cross suckler cows at Halls Farm.

Different grass mixtures have been used across the farm in recent years. Most recently these have included our long term Evergeen and Capital mixtures which both have high clover contents.

To increase grazing tolerance and longevity of the sward a special mix of 100% diploid ryegrass, clover, plantain and festulolium is currently being used for upland rotational cattle grazing.

Agri Scotch Beef Farmer of the year 2018

Dods of Haddington would like to congratulate Niall, Angus and Lynda Jeffrey at Bielgrange for being awarded AgriScot Scotch Beef Farm of the Year 2018.

The aim of the Scotch Beef Farm of the Year Award, which is run by AgriScot and Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) is to showcase excellence in the production of cattle in Scotland and raise the profile of the dedication and stock management skills behind the production of Scotch Beef PGI.

We value Dods of Haddington’s industry leading knowledge and advice as well as their supply of quality grass and cereal seed. Prompt delivery of winter wheat seed is especially important for our farming system, and we can rely on Dods for this.
