Farm walk notes:

The rain we got over the last few weeks has made a huge difference and it's nice to see things starting to green up again. This week I have stitched some Italian ryegrass into existing pastures that have been under performing or look open. All the  young permanent ryegrass paddocks are back in the rotation now, and they are looking very 'healthy'. The cows are milking well and hopefully I can remove grass silage from the diet again soon once growth rates increase.
