Have had some very wet weather. We have had cows on pad at night and some days just to stop any pugging. It has been a battle.
The cows have been getting as much silage as they can eat on the pad and 5.5 kg of concentrates in the cow shed. Have held 2.4ms/cow/day through the bad weather on below average silage 10ME 7CP. Sunny now and grass is rocketing.
Aiming for 2.5m/s Over 90% cows calved.
Over 85% calved now and already doing over 7 ms/ha/day.
