The McGrade herd is now over 200 days in milk on average, cows are over the peak milk production period and grazing night and day on the grazing block. Concentrate has been removed from the parlour feed, with good quality grazed grass the only feed going in.

Getting the grazing management correct for Kevin is the key to hold the daily production for the herd. Currently cows are producing 21 litres, with butterfat 4.10% and protein 3.71%, with the SCC average for the herd last week at 73,000 cells/ml.
