Pasture quality tests from February pasture show how "average" the summer quality has been, between 9.5 to 10.0 MJME/kgDM. At 11 - 14kgDM/cow of pasture, this is definitely the biggest limiting factor on production right now. Working hard this week to juggle paddocks at varying lengths (thanks to tasty new grasses), adjusting silage needs and for now not yet reducing the in-shed feed. Weighed our R2s at grazing last week 395kg, and brought empty and surplus in-calf animals home. Phew! It's been a busy little time!
