Grass growth overtakes 2015 year to year figure,

The paddock systems this year have really proved there worth, excellent growing conditions and good infrastructure have really helped boost milk from grass (the cheapest route to milk production by far).

New Grass leys established last year have preformed well turning grass into milk effectively

We have done quite a area of Pasture renovation this year, soil temperatures are fairly high at 16-17 degrees so germinations have been very quick.

Renovating a pasture process Graze/Cut as low as you can go РDrill a renovation seed into the sward- Roll- graze for 7 days- Remove stock for 3 weeks, then back the rotation
