The everyday of our family farm
Interesting. A forced change of usage?
The seasonal outlook is not looking very good re rainfall. Wheat takes less rainfall to get established & growing than winter pastures that traditionally dairy farmers would plant. Depending on the rainfall during winter and into spring the wheat can be grazed a few times and then shut up in spring for hay. This dairy farm is also planting pasture in some other paddocks... an each way bet.
That rig would fill a field here. Not that there are many small farms doing dairy now. Beef is okay, the specialist breeds like Highlands and Galloway fetch a premium but they need to.
