Supplement Trial 2019/20 Financial Results Available Now
Supplement Use in a Variable Climate Trial results are in for the 2019/20 season.
The effect of the drought is clear with all farms dropping in profit by $600 to $1200/ha.
The PKE Plus farm was the most profitable for the first time in this trial, but needed the high milk price to achieve this. At $6/kgMS milk price the Pasture Only farm would have been the most profitable.
The marginal cost of purchased supplements was again around $6.50 despite the low pasture growth during the autumn.
