Evan share milks 350 cows and produces more than 1200 MS/Ha just North of Blenhiem “Now most of our neighbours grow grapes and it’s getting to the stage where it’s more and more difficult to find good grazing nearby”. Irrigation and plenty of maize silage is the key to getting high milk solids per ha in the dry Marlborough climate. “If we didn’t have irrigation we would be short of grass pretty quickly so we irrigate from October onwards and make grass silage with the surplus”. Evan uses NutriMin® Silage Balancer to make up for the loss of minerals whilst feeding maize silage and he also uses Nutritech’s HiTrace® 4 as a way of putting back some of the minerals and trace elements lost through leaching. “It’s really easy to mix up and the cows love the taste, but best of all it really works. Our cows are in good order and our latest blood tests show that we no longer need to give them a copper bullet over the winter, for 3 cents per dose I feel we are getting great value for money”.
