Management of summer feed deficits on three high-performing dairy farms in the Manawatu


Proceedings of the New Zealand Grassland Association 57: 9-13
Management of summer feed deficits on three high-performing dairy farms in the Manawatu
New Zealand dairy farmers can use a range of options (e.g. summer forage crops or silage) to minimize the impact of both variable and inadequate summer feed supply. Much has been written about recommended procedures for planning and monitoring pasture-based systems, but there is little documentation on the processes actually used by New Zealand dairy farmers.
