  • Three good quality homes are available for the farm team.
  • Colosseum farms a herd of cows specifically chosen to produce A2 milk. This milk is sold on contract to Synlait milk as a specialist ingredient for infant formula.
  • In the 2016/17 season, the farm milked 1000 heifers with a production of 323 kgMS per cow.
  • This season Colosseum will milk 950 A2 heifers
