Breakfeeds are shorter podcasts from Beef + Lamb New Zealand
As we head into winter in a ‘normal’ year, it’s the time to set up for next spring and summer. This is especially important when feed supply is affected by weather events such as drought, and in 2020 is compounded by restrictions on processing and sale yards. Lee Matheson is an agribusiness consultant and Managing Director of Perrin Ag. He joins us to discuss his priorities for farm businesses at this time of year, including sticking to plans, making objective decisions on the most profitable use of feed in front of us (rather than feed already eaten), setting a ‘drop dead’ date (and what that means), the opportunity to re-examine goals and objectives, and much more.
