Late spring management
Identifying and managing pasture surplus early and maintaining good quality pasture through good grazing practices is key to maximising late spring and summer milk solids production.
Successful summer management means regular monitoring. Go for farm walks, manage grazing residuals, monitor body condition scores, keep up-to-date with industry information, and plan ahead.
