Farm walk notes:

There is 12 ha of grass silage that is being cut today, we did add in an exta 5 ha as this weeks feed wedge had a surplus again so that dropped our APC from 2160 to 2050 & PGR from 55 to 45. The new paddocks not really ready (at 3000-3200kgDM/ha) but with possible soil moisture deficit not far away we did not want to leave them out of the round for too long & it was too small of an area so it would have been a pain to get the contractors back.
