Our measuring farmers have grown 24kg DM/ha/day since last week, a 60% increase on the week before. Higher temperatures and more sunlight have brought ideal conditions for growing and more importantly eating grass. The vast majority of farmers have managed to get some class of stock to grass this week as ground conditions improved.
Those on the wettest ground have been able to take some baby steps with lighter stock and/or their driest areas. While these conditions look set to continue for the coming days, there is moisture forecast in western areas on Friday and Saturday.
