Put money and resources into water and pasture systems

Ashgrove farms has dairy, cropping and beef operations as well as a cheese factory. They have two adjacent farms with about 50% of the milking area irrigated. The milk requirements for the cheese factory have pushed the operation towards a more constant flow of milk. To achieve this and to adapt to a more variable climate, the Bennetts have added some 2,000 ML storage in four dams, to run five centre pivots irrigating 210 ha, or about 50% of the milking area.
