All autumn cows calved. Started on the 3rd October and finished on the 21st November.

Will start to dry Spring calvers next week. Grown 14.5 tons grass DM/ha this year to date.

Should supply over 520kg milk solids per cow. 1 ton of meal fed per cow. Muriate of potash and lime spread this Autumn.

 Autumn calving started. They will be housed full time and spring calvers are cleaning out paddocks well.

Target to graze 70%by the 2nd of November. Need to spread lime as soon as conditions allow.

Muriate of potash spread on low potassium land.

Buffer feeding 7kg per head per day and 4kg in the parlour. Rotation at 25 days. Spread one bag of 18/6/12 two weeks ago and got good response considering the lack of moisture, going with second bag now.
