Ben and Jemma Abernethy are in their 3rd season 50:50 Sharemilking a 119ha, 410 cow property in Rangiora. Ben achieved 450MS/cow last season and is looking to achieve over 460kgMS/cow this season.

  • Late spring/summer pasture quality management - how do you look to maintain quality?
  • The benefits of going once-a-day post-Christmas - is it worth doing?

We will finish off with a BBQ lunch supplied by Farm Source Rangiora.
