Waikato Autumn Calving Focus Group November

Warren and Heather have been full Autumn Calving for 5 seasons on a 53ha dairy platform.

The farm produces over 2500kgMS/ha and over 550kgMS/cow under Heather's watchful eye managing feeding, breeding and milking.

Warren looks after the land, crops and infrastructure and between them they have found a system that meets their lifestyle and profit needs.

Topics for discussion include;

  • strategies for breeding Autumn calving cows as biosecurity concerns threaten buying empties
  • We will talk about summer crops for dry cows
  • and their management to prevent heat stress and over grazing

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