“The production has increased from 500 to 600 milk solids per cow, fertility and animal health is much better. It is helpful to do the sums on the economy of production to determine the returns. Outside eyes provide a better objective benchmark on production and body condition. It is helpful to get new/fresh ideas to challenge things done in the past. Making the system more efficient and perform better. It is good to have somebody to phone up and get quick access to advice and answers. So many things a farmer has to do (compliance), can’t expect a farmer to be an expert in all these fields.”
