Hauraki Herald - - FARMING -

What’s been hap­pen­ing this week? Annabelle Smart from Dairy NZ re­ports in.

Re­cent rain has been wel­comed by new grass/ un­der sown pas­tures which have started to emerge.

Some have jumped at the op­por­tu­nity to get some ni­tro­gen into the soil.

With an in­crease in growth rate’s farm­ers are start­ing to think about ex­tend­ing round length in or­der to build pas­ture covers.

Mov­ing day is not far away and all of the farm­ers have been think­ing about what biose­cu­rity risks need to be min­imised.
