Milk liners were changed this week on the Kilkenny farm. It’s the time of the year for milk liners to be changed in many parlours. At this stage, many liners have over 2,000 milkings completed since cows first started calving and milking in February.

Grass growth recovered well this week on the Greenfield farm. Growth rates rose from 64kg to 92kg per day. The result of the higher growth rates was a higher average farm cover, which lifted from 371kg to 519kg DM/ha (100kg/LU to 144kg/LU).
