Experiences with evaluating two farming systems in a split herd comparison on a commercial Waikato dairy farm



Experiences with evaluating two farming systems in a split herd comparison on a commercial Waikato dairy farm



Proceedings of the New Zealand Grassland Association 63: 189-194



An on-farm demonstration of the effects of a higher stocking rate (expressed as cows per hectare), supported by purchased maize silage, was conducted on a commercial Waikato dairy farm that was split into 2 farmlets. Milk from each farmlet was collected into separate vats.
