At Kingshay:

Grass growth at the SWDDC, Beard Hill has continued at a reasonable rate of 60kg DM per hectare. The 2nd cut aftermaths have now been brought into the grazing round and are providing clean grazing.

Cows are now being dried off ahead of calving from early September. This gives a sizable dry cow mob which is being used to tidy up paddocks that have been grazed several times, to reinstate residuals.

Protein Efficiency in Dairy Cows - dairy insight

Protein is essential for milk production in cattle but should dairy farmers consider lowering protein levels in dairy rations? Lowering protein concentration can improve feed margins, as well as reducing enviromental impacts of nitrogen excretion from cow urine and feaces. This dairy insight summarises why to consider lowering protein, outlines about the new NRC feed recommendations that are due to be updated later this year and highlights how microbical proteins provide the most balance form of amino acid for dairy cows.
