In this episode we are joined by Dawn Dalley, a Senior Scientist at DairyNZ, who shares her wealth of experience and insights gained from over 15 years of research on managing cows in winter conditions. Dawn talks about the challenges cows face in wet winter conditions and the key findings from extensive research on paddock-based wintering. She also covers essential topics like grazing direction, critical source area protection, having a contingency plan, and why pugging depth might not be the best indicator of cow comfort.
