Using spring rotation planner so grazing what that says , but they’ll still be in at night til into march
Set farm up so 10 April should be first day of second round
If it turns wet I’ll keep them in for a few days but the savings are the things
Scrape once instead of twice
Sawdust every 2/3 days instead of every day
Then there will be an uplift in milk
All positives , don’t see where the negatives are!!

It's surprising how long it takes to move cows around the yard so you can scrape up! Do you have a link to the spring rotation planner? I want to get mine out again tomorrow but don't want to give them too much and run out prior to April

Start off with a small daily allocation like no more than 1/60th of platform and keep them in if its dodgy. Try to measure ASAP and the use the spring planner on agrinet if you use it.

My AFC is below target because of youngstock regrazing what should have been closed in october before christmas. So reckon I won't graze this month at all

We make poor silage here because it’s cut and not picked up for two days sometimes three
I’ve got plenty of silage left but just not good enough
First cut was 10.9 me
Second cut 10.4 me
Made in perfect condition every 5/6 weeks but as said 2/3 days on floor

Why is it left on floor for so long?
