  • This week on the monitor farms.

    A winter blast was felt with rain earlier in the week and frosts towards the end.  We’re starting up the weekly routine of monitoring so we’ll be back to regular farm walks and reporting next week.

    Spring grazing management

    Grazing management during calving largely determines production to Christmas and how well the cows can be fed at mating.  Pasture allowance and farm rotation length is constantly changing throughout this early spring period as new cows enter the milking herd on a daily basis.  Getting it right to arrive at Balance Date on target is quite the balancing act.

    DairyNZ’s Spring Rotation Planner takes the guess work out of grazing management during this critical period.  Check it out online or come along to our BOP Spring Rotation workshop on ZOOM next Thursday 9th July.  Click here to register and for further details.
