Upcoming Focus Days

Next Focus Day- Monday 19 June 2023 @ 2.00pm - Ashburton Event Centre

Next Focus Day is on Monday 19 June at the Ashburton Event Centre, Ashburton from 2.00pm to 4.30pm. Refreshments and registration on arrival.

Dairy farmers, owners, managers, staff, and dairy industry professionals are invited to come along and hear about how LUDF decreased its empty rate from 20% last season, to just 12% this season using collars/ intervention and a longer mating period.

In addition we will be comparing and diving further into the results from tests and measurements taken at both LUDF and Liam Kelly's farm in the 2022/23 mating period to see what improvements can be made on LUDF to obtain an even lower empty rate next season. This includes nutritional information and feeding allocation, differences in rumination, NEFA test results and milk protein measurements.
