Browns South Hillend Discussion Group December

Our last Browns South Hillend discussion group of the year!

It's already time for the last discussion group of the year!

 Our hosts are sharemilkers Michael and Ruth Prankerd who operate two 50/50 jobs with the focus of the day being on their x815 cow farm in Otapiri. The farm is stocked at 3.4 cows/ha and high input, feeding 1.5t/cow/year. They are in the process of building a x400 cow feedpad to try mitigate feeding on their heavy soils. Topics of the day will include:

  • Managing a high input, highly stocked farm in Southland and the best ways to utilise their new feedpad
  • Increasing robust financial discussions at group and calculating your breakeven milkprice. Please be aware of your numbers for the day including: operating expenses, farm working expenses, interest & rent, tax, drawings, total cash expenses, net livestock and other dairy cash income (not required to share with group) so you can work out your BEMP on the day.

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