Weekly Farm Summary 28 February 2024

This week we hosted farmers, researchers and managers from Dairy Trust Taranaki, Northland Dairy Development Trust - NDDT and Northland Agricultural Research Farm. Was great to reconnect and continue discussions on how we can work together and extract more value from research across the regions. They were very jealous of the lush green grass our cows are eating at the moment!!

The R2's were weighed this week at the same time as the final scan - 2% empty plus 2 freemartins identified. Next step is to look at the calving dates and determine the fate of any late calvers given the bulls were left out for 2 extra weeks this year.
