Average production figures April 2013

The pastures have continued to be really slow due to a real lack of rain, however production has been very similar especially relative to last season. Its interesting to note that production in relative terms to last season is almost identical however we have achieved this production with slightly less concentrates (0.5kg DM per cow per day); which in turn has that (due to increased grain prices this season) our grain spend is only 1 cent per litre above last season on average, but as it stands with milk price month on month being 2 cents per litre higher, our Margin over concentrates is actually 3 cents/cow/day above April 2012.

Its also interesting to note that on average we are as a group milking slightly more cows this season than last. The dilution effect on the likes of overheads etc should see an improvement in margins etc in the coming months...fingers crossed.
