Waikato Bay of Plenty Organic Discussion Group

Surviving Summer with Lucerne and Maize Silage

Tim and Sandie Fransen operate a high producing organic farm at Te Kawa between Te Awamutu and Otorohanga. Lucerne and maize are grown on farm to fill feed deficits and maintain a good level of milk production. The group will focus on how they grow lucerne and maize organically and how these feed sources are used in their system.
