Waste water is delivered to farm gate at 11-13 megs per day dependant on other users. This equates in the region of 250 megs per annum, which is only likely to increase due to the growth of Echuca and Rochester.
PRODUCTION:
Silage production for 2017 approximately 420 dry-tonne of shaftal and rye grass and approx. 350 – 400, 8 x 4 x 3 square bales of quality clover hay.
As of November 2017, milking 260 + cows, with a further 60 to calve January/February. A balance of 120 thereabouts to calve for the autumn. The herd is predominantly a pure bred Friesian herd with only A2 sires used for the last 6 years with the recent addition of cross-bred heifers. The herd has been bred for high health and fertility traits. Breeding a slightly smaller framed animal with the gains being a higher feed conversion efficiency.
The farm boasts an excellent soil health history (fertiliser). Since ownership the owners have employed a highly respected agronomist and have as a result, put huge emphasis on healthy soils. Not to mention massive inputs to achieve this, such as high applications of their own compost, lime and foliar applied fertilisers and the production history is reflecting this with annually increasing fodder and milk production.
