Tasmanian Dairy Business of the Year 2017 Booklet

Utilising pasture, their lowest cost feed, is a key focus on the Mulder’s farm. Paddocks are grazed when they reach the 2.5-3 leaf stage and are managed to achieve a consistent residual of 1500 kgDM/ha. Rotation length in spring is generally 19-20 days, extending out to 80 days in winter. In the Award year, Ronnie took weekly measurements of the pasture cover for each paddock using a C-Dax bike reader, with the information recorded in “pasture.io” to produce a feed wedge and provide average pasture cover with growth rates for the farm.
