Farm walk notes:

Impact of the season on the autumn feed budget: It has been very hot especially late December through the whole of January 2018. This has affected production  over that period as cows were spending more time cooling off rather than grazing. The soil has been dry even with irrigation going full on. I’ve pushed my rounds up to 30 days at the beginning of February but it has been a struggle as grass growth has not been as expected resulting in more supplements put in to hold the round. This might have an effect on the autumn feed budget.
