Malijo Consulting and Dairy News Australia.

Dairy news Australia has published an article in its december issue in relation to our clients challenging traditional ways of thinking in with their transition feeding strategies. The use of Ethi-Cal and the "Fizz" has seen our clients in many cases defy the odds, calving cows on high quality qasture or legume forages. As a consequence, many of these herds have seen improvements not only in productivity, but significant increases in preganancy rates and significantly less body weight loss, and improvements in general herd health.

This "New way of thinking" is not without its challenges, but we really look forward to refining the strategy and improve its application.

This is the condition you want your heifers in this time of year!

Average Production for July 2013

Attached is a copy of the average production figures for July 2013. Also attached is a copy of the July 2012 v's July 2013. And as you can see, the wetter conditions have taken their effect on productivity and we as a group have been a little less (probably due to tight times) responsive in increasing intake of other fodder and concentrates, and as a result production is well down on last season. 

All that aside however the season is shaping up well, with the pastures now starting to grow pretty well, our challenge being to get the cows calved intakes increased as rapidly as we possibly can in order to take full advantage of the season ahead.

Average production figures June 2013

Average production figures for the June 2013 were down a little on the where we would have liked, but this was brought about by the amount of wet weather that we experienced in the first week of the month. This not only meant that pasture intakes were down, but due to the genuine lack of quality fodder available, manging intakes with such a stale group of cows was very difficult.

However with the new season apon us and looking positive for milk price, now is the time to get the cows off to a flying start. This means ensuring that you all have a dry cow and transition management strategy that ensures that you meet the demands of the transition cow. With access Fodder being limited there will be many different means and ways of making this happen.

So make sure that you speak with up in the very near future to make sure your diets are set to get the cows off to a flyer!!
