Jersey breed­ers get-to­gether

Matamata Chronicle - - Rural Delivery -

Mata­mata jersey breed­ers are en­cour­aged to join the East Waikato Jersey In­ter­est Dis­cus­sion Group’s sec­ond event at Lloyd and Anne Wil­son’s jersey farm on 88 Tai­hou South Rd, Mata­mata, on July 7 at 11am.

The Wil­sons will talk about the World Jersey Con­fer­ence, their farm and on the herd walk they will talk about why they use over­seas ge­net­ics, the pros and cons of keep­ing heifers on the farm, as they are do­ing for the first time this year, and us­ing crops to get through the sea­son rather than im­port­ing sup­ple­ments.

For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact group co­or­di­na­tor Me­gan Ed­meades on 021 414 529.
