Waikato Once a Day Group May

Combined group for Maungatautari-Horahora and Waikato Once a Day farmers.

This discussion group will focus on the host farmers system and management practices in order to identify opportunities and solutions that meet the hosts future goals and objectives.

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

Topics at group:

  • Cow condition is not likely to be as good as normal this calving. Does it matter due to OAD milking?
  • What is best to focus on: good cow condition at calving or having a high (targeted) average pasture cover at calving.
  • Quick summary of the zero carbon bill before Parliament and how to reduce greenhouse gases on farm.

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