LUDF was converted to Dairy Farming in 2002. The farm system has changed over the years from a high stocking rate, intense farm system, to the current low stocking rate, low environmental foot print farm program. One constant has always been a focus, harvesting as much high quality pasture as possible. No grain or PKE has been used in the history of LUDF.
