We had a decent few hours of heavy rain in Clara at last this week after the showers over the last few weeks had managed to avoid us for the most part.

Growth had dropped to a disappointing 25kg DM/ha at the last measurement and we had started to eat into the grass that had been built up on the farm for the autumn rotation. Hopefully this 12mm of rain will kick growth on again and we can build grass covers back up to extend grazing right out into the autumn without too much supplementary feeding. The farm is turning green again already.
