  • Keep an eye on the feed wedge over the winter and manage the round length accordingly.  The paddocks that were grazed early in the dry period are likely to be those calved on or milked off early in the season, so the grazing pressure and timing of grazing will be important.  Think about those areas of the farm that might be targeted for early applications of nitrogen - are they the ones that will generate the best responses? When will it be best to graze these areas through the winter? Now is the time to revisit your spring pasture management plan. Pasture management in the first 2 months after calving has a large impact on production through to December. Use the Spring Rotation Planner (SRP) to assist with allocation of your grazing area from calving until balance date. Details on the Spring Rotation Planner can be found at http://www.dairynz.co.nz/feed/feed-management-tools/spring-rotation-planner/
