All dairy farmers going into summer

Many farmers are looking to make up some ground heading into the warmer months. Whether you're looking to make the most of the season, rebuild equity, or consolidate, Dairy Australia has created resources tailored for you.


PLANNING AND BUDGETING

 

COW HEALTH AND PRODUCTIVITY

 

Boost your chances of success by:

  1. Optimising milk production levels to maximise your milk income minus feed costs;
  2. Utilising home-grown feed (if available) together with profitable, efficient use of supplements;
  3. Targeting high peak milk yields for spring-calved cows and ensuring these cows stay on the optimum lactation curve.

In this video, Feedbase and nutrition lead, Ruairi McDonnell and dairy consultant, Steve Little discuss stock water planning for summer.
