Farm walk notes:

It's promising to see APC lift for the second consecutive week. The plan going forward is to slowly reduce supplements as area/cow increases. Currently, we allocate 60m2/cow per day, this will increase to 80m2/cow over the next week. 80m2/cow will put us on a 38-day round. Drier ground conditions will allow us to catch up on some N application next week.
