Platform is a 44-stand, Bonlac 1995. Upgraded in 2013 to include a full MILFOS plant, including ACR’s, retention arms, pulsation and milk metering system, including litres, fat, protein, lactose temperature, conductivity. The platform also boasts a teat wand and auto draft. The system is Bluetooth and infrared, which is controlled with a full jantec data base computerised system. The jantec software allows for full herd management and auto feed. The farm’s factory cell count is measured in 2 digits since the installation of this technology. Other upgrades include GEA variable speed vac pump and a multi-stage variable speed pressure pump.
The dairy also provides an office block housing the data base and auto-irrigation systems which are by choice stand-alone and internet free. These systems are hardwired to the house office. Kitchenette and bathroom, along with TV and video facilities.
Fully sprinklered and grooved yard, with comfort matting strategically utilised.
Dairy feed system incorporates 2 feed heads, crushed grain and profeed. 1 x Bamawm rollermill, 100 tonne grain capacity, 1 x 15 tonne milled grain silo, 1 x 25 tonne promix silo, 1 x 8 tonne lead feed silo.
WATER
Auto irrigation controls approximately 80% of the farm, plus 1 x re-use pump and 1 x lift pump. There are 3 delivery shares connected to back bone channel. Early season the bore does roughly 14 megs per day, falling around to 11.5 mid-summer. 490 meg of licence.
Waste water is delivered to farm gate at 11-13 megs per day dependant on other users. This equates in the region of 250 megs per annum, which is only likely to increase due to the growth of Echuca and Rochester.
PRODUCTION:
Silage production for 2017 approximately 420 dry-tonne of shaftal and rye grass and approx. 350 – 400, 8 x 4 x 3 square bales of quality clover hay.
As of November 2017, milking 260 + cows, with a further 60 to calve January/February. A balance of 120 thereabouts to calve for the autumn. The herd is predominantly a pure bred Freisian herd with only A2 sires used for the last 6 years with the recent addition of cross-bred heifers. The herd has been bred for high health and fertility traits. Breeding a slightly smaller framed animal with the gains being a higher feed conversion efficiency.
The farm boasts an excellent soil health history (fertiliser). Since ownership the owners have employed a highly respected agronomist and have as a result, put huge emphasis on healthy soils. Not to mention massive inputs to achieve this, such as high applications of their own compost, lime and foliar applied fertilisers and the production history is reflecting this with annually increasing fodder and milk production.
