Mythbusting on the farm

Posted by Team at FarmIQ on 13/07/16 14:15

Rakaia Gorge farmer Paul Ensor is using farm software to help him bust myths on his farm.

Glenaan runs 5650 stock units of sheep – including nearly 3000 ultra-fine Merino ewes as well as cattle – on 1035ha of high-country land in the Rakaia Gorge.

They have used farm management software over the past few years to benchmark livestock performance and understand opportunities, and also to do some “mythbusting” around the value of inputs.
