As of 2020, only one other farm in the UK has had greater success.

Dispersal of the herd

The mid-to-late 1990’s marked a time of severe distress for the UK dairy industry. During this period, the Hayleys herd was gradually reduced in size through a series of dispersal sales, culminating in the final dispersal sale at New Farm, Epping in 2003.
