What’s happening on the farm: We are starting to speed up the rotation now that we have a good feed wedge in front of us. Chicory will be ready to graze in the next fortnight. Calving is progressing well with very few cases of milk fever. Springers are in the shed being lead fed with 3kg of grain and ad lib pasture hay per day. The paddocks aren’t too wet yet with recent rain, and we have been able to continue to apply nitrogen at 100kg/ha.
