Farm walk notes:

We have brought our 54 R1 heifers on to the platform to increase demand; we target to graze the paddocks that are still a bit water-logged. The new grass paddocks are performing very well, Italian ryegrass paddocks with pasture growth rates of 30-60 kg DM/ha & annual ryegrass with pasture growth rates of 50-80 kg/ha/day. This coming week we will bring on to the platform our September calvers to increase our demand further. We are also decreasing supplements in the diet by half.
