Planning your summer cropping
Given the time of year, many will be considering options for summer crops.
Dairy Australia have developed a Planning your Summer Cropping Factsheet which highlights key points to consider when making decisions to plan your summer cropping program.
If thinking about a summer crop have you considered what the seasonal forecast is? There is no point putting in a crop if you can't keep the water up to it, or if the season is good you do not need it. You might also like to consider other factors such as; how the crop will meet dietary requirements of the herd, when you will use the crop, the infrastructure you will need to feed it out. There are plenty of crop options out there, just make sure you work with an agronomist to pick one that will suit you and your situation.
