They are drinking most of their feed atm
Is it possible for a cow to eat enough dry matter to support her milk at the moment..
Don’t think so
not a hope, maybe at 5l
Grazing has somewhat come back on track this last 2 weeks around here. Ground has dried up and cattle are able to get a lot more out of it. An extra day's grazing has been added to some fields, and even this week we have seen 5 days out of one paddock that only saw 3 days on the previous 2 rounds. It all counts when we get to this time of year. We are just beginning our last round of grazing in these parts. If we get strong regrowth, we will wean calves in mid October and leave the cows in while the calves may get to graze into November.
savage growth at the moment
Growth is actually ahead of where I thought it would be at moment. High temperatures probably driving that this week anyways. Ground is in good enough order too. Hopefully stays that way.
