Challenge Dairy Update from Trystan

By Wynnstay Dairy Team 5 years ago

Since starting Challenge Dairy in April there has been a lot of activity on the farm. As part of the Challenge Dairy prize I have received nutritional advice provided by Wynnstay and this has seen our milk production increase from 22L per cow to 28L, I am now looking to maintain this level of production throughout the winter. Currently the cows are grazing through the day and are in at night. The cows are now having 9 kilos of blend each in the TMR, with the high yielders receiving a maximum of 4 kilos of dairy nuts in the parlour.
