Calves dropped from ag day

Bush Telegraph - - Focus On Farming - By DRIES DE JONG

This year the Bush Ag Day will be dif­fer­ent. We have had some changes pushed on us by MPI be­cause of the M. bo­vis threat to cows/calves.

The Bush Ag Day will hap­pen but this year we will not have calves com­pet­ing due to the M. bo­vis threat.

M. bo­vis does not af­fect sheep. So we will hold a Lamb Day and look for­ward to all the Bush re­gion’s schools par­tic­i­pat­ing. It will still be a great day for the kids.

We also have a change of venue this year. We will be at the old school grounds of Manga­maire School on Tu­taekara Rd, just south of Pahiatua. Park­ing and show­ing of the lambs will be on the old school grounds. Park­ing is also avail­able on the Manga­maire Hall car park.

The day will be Thurs­day, Novem­ber 8, start­ing at 10am. Come along and see the kids en­joy­ing show­ing their pet lambs.
