Chris and Stacey are in their third season Sharemilking on 210 ha milking platform and 140 ha of support land owned by Peter and Margaret Brooker. 600 cows are milked OAD all season, the focus being on low cost, sustainable farming.
Chris and Stacey are keen to have your input on the systems they should put in place to achieve a 90% six week in calf rate with this OAD herd.
Peter and Margaret wish to discuss the wintering policy and how this can be changed to minimise possible environmental impacts.
We will start with the usual Whipround.
