Getting through a dry spell
We all know that droughts can be long and relentless. Look after yourself, family, employees and keep an eye on your neighbours.
Talk to trusted advisors and those who have survived this before, and make use of the help or support offered. The drought has been affecting Northland for some time and this is stressful while we wait for rain
Talk to your local stock agent. Book as early as possible; space at meat plants remains tight due to the COVID-19 disruption with shipping and markets.
In many regions, drought and the effects of COVID-19 have combined to create feed pressure for farmers. Now is the time to seek help and plan for the next few months. If buying feed - act early. Order supplementary feed now while some is available.
