DairyCo Roadshow: Grass As The System

10 November 2010

UK - Influential speaker and consultant Dr John Roche will be discussing the key profit drivers for grazing systems at presentations across the country in a DairyCo roadshow this month.

"With commodity prices rising but volatile, successful farm systems must be able to produce milk cheaply to survive market downturns, while capitalising on high milk prices when they occur," says Dr Roche.

Dr Roche will be aiming to dispel many commonly held myths regarding the importance of milk yield/cow to farm profitability. He will also be discussing suitable genetics for grazing systems, milk production and reproduction responses to supplements; and the importance of grazing management and stocking rate in optimally run systems.
