Dry weather sees yields drop back

Milk yields have been impacted by prolonged dry weather seen throughout April, with grass growth rates much lower than last year in the build up to the peak. The latest Forage for Knowledge grass growth data shows an a large increase in grass growth for the week ending 22 May, with growth rates now exceeding those seen last year. If this continues it could aid milk production in coming weeks.

Dairy products and, in particular, grass-fed products are performing strongly post-covid in overseas markets.
