From your point of view, why this farm is interesting to be followed in R4D ?
Dry soil intensive farm - Philip is running a high stocking rate (3 dairy cows per hectare on the ‘milking platform’), high genetic merit dairy herd on a very dry farm. While grassland management is excellent, grass yield is limited by summer drought.
