Regen Dairy Farming

    I grew up on an NZ dairy farm, and have been involved with many aspects of farming in NZ for many years before shifting to WA 4.5 years ago. So I was wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of Regen Dairy farming, how that looks and are there any farmers doing this in WA.? Many Thanks,

    Carl

    Hey Carl,

    I know Cheeky Cow are regenerative dairy producers, based down in Busselton. They have multiple stockists, including Dirty Clean Food who are a regenerative food delivery service/food brand of Wide Open Agriculture.

    Hi Carl

    Andrew Angelino would be one fella worth tracking down he’s in Mount Gambier SA on the edge of the limestone trending towards volcanic soils gone from fortnightly N application to growing soil in an organic biological system has come a long way since this article was written years ago but it’s about all I could find.

      Cheers, Steve.

      Thanks for the info, I feel that dairy farming will be the most interesting in HM and Regen farming.

      We were always so focused on keeping the grass in a growing state, never letting the pasture mature even in silage of hay making.

      High N input instead of growing clover

      Many thanks.

      Carl

      They were doing amazing things with Humates etc
