Farm walk notes:

Cows have started calving earlier then expected. 75 have calved to date, compared to 45 in budget. Only the milkers are outside and given silage in trollies. This week the plan is to make a milkers mob and give them their area and top up with silage in barn. Soil moisture is still high and pasture growth is not picking up yet.
