Farm walk notes:

All cows are dried off. We've planned a farm walk for next week to see what covers are there and work this into the spring rotation planner. The SRP starts on a 100-day round and 28 days on balance date. This should give us almost 3 full leaves to graze. Only colostrums and milkers are in SRP, as the dry cows are being kept in the barn. In wet periods, the milkers will be in the barn to prevent pugging damage.
