Feed supply low for many farmers after ongoing drought

Although drought in most parts of the country has been broken with recent rainfall, feed supplies remain low for many farmers around the country.

"Managing ourselves for the next two or three months until that grass takes off and we've got a surplus again is going to be quite integral," Pioneer Seeds area manager Matt Dalley told Rural Exchange.

He said for many farmers preparation for next season should start now.

"If you have a rough idea where you're going with your cropping system, identifying those paddocks, doing silt tests, prepping yourself for it - head down that line."
