Already??  I heard it's dry up north and they might have to consider milking less.

We are still milking twice a day and going to push it for a while. (southland)

Lots of folks in Canterbury, TOTS, Manawatu, Naki, Waikato - they tend to change over around Christmas time.  Easier on cows and people with the heat and walking.

We normally change to 16 hours in February, depends on the feed situation.
