Things have been a bit quieter on farm this week with the priority being on fine tuning the pasture allocation, getting the baleage made and picking cows for AI.
Last Friday we farewelled Tolu who has chosen a career change to allow him to spend more time with his family. We have had a new relief milker start who is getting up to speed with our milking regimes and are looking forward to our new permanent staff coming on board. The team are working together really well to ensure everything gets done and the research is implemented as planned.
On the research front we are working through the logistics of broadcasting plantain seed onto a few paddocks to see what sort of establishment we can get. Hopefully we can report on how this goes over the next couple of weeks.
