Greenfield Dairy Farm

Greenfield Dairy Farm is a commercial dairy farm milking 330 cows in spring milk production. The farm is leased for 15 years, converted to grass from tillage in 2010. Heifer calves contract reared. All machinery work contracted out. The farm was established to develop production information and financial data for a large scale dairy farm using real costs.
On average the Greenfield herd are delivering about two kilogrammes of milk solids per cow per day for the last two weeks reports Jack Kennedy.
