Breakfeed: Managing your farm and your feed budget in dry conditions

Richmond Beetham, a consultant for BakerAg talks with Beef + Lamb New Zealand Extension Manager Mark Harris and Wairarapa farmer Sam Johnston about how best to tackle a drought.

They discuss the key principles of drought management from managing the people side of the business to the everyday farm management decisions that need to be made, such as de-stocking or supplementary feeding.

The overall theme is making a plan so have a listen and then sit down and decide what you can do now in your business to minimise stress on you, your staff and your stock.
