Horsham Downs Discussion Group October

Please note change of date

Rhys is in his 7th season as LOSM on this 110ha effective farm, milking 400 friesian cows doing 480-500 kgMS/cow.

The farm is in its second season as a Spring calving unit, having been split calving for 8-9 years.

Come and learn why Reece has reverted back to a Spring calving system, and why he has decided to calve later - 30th July relative to others in the area.

We will also discuss seasonal issues and challenges that are affecting farmers in the region

Lunch provided by Open Country Dairy – they will be sharing some modelling work to show how the above decisions stack up financially.

 

Protect our industry - please arrive with clean boots to reduce the risk of spreading a disease, pest or weed.
