AbstractKeywords: conversion, dairy farming, soil fertility, pasture, productivity, profitability Area 161 effective hectares on the dairy unit plus lease of 79 hectares History In 1991 we were farming the original 120 ha sheep property. Lloyd was working almost full time as a truck driver in order for us to support two families on the property. We basically had three options available to improve our net income and equity. They were to either get bigger, to diversify or to intensify further. Over the last 10 years we have done all three of these. The first and major hurdle though, was to change our farming system to dairy production.
