Message from the Chairman
Spring is here and although the weather is beginning to improve many of you will be faced with land too wet to cultivate.
Horizons recognise the challenges you may face with the combined effects of the June flood event and an uncertain dairy payout and we’re committed to working with you through this period. If you need any advice on Horizons related matters,
please give the Dairy Team a call on 0508 800 800.
Along with Horizons there are a number of groups and organisations committed to helping farmers through this period. The Rural Support Trust encourages farmers, their families and farming communities to support each other. For free and confidential assistance call 0800 RURAL HELP (0800 787 254) to speak to your local coordinator or visit www.rural-support.org.nz.
This edition of Dairy e-News includes information regarding the changes to this year’s dairy inspection season, currently being
undertaken; nutrient management and the Overseer update-6.2; flowmeter installations and verifications; and the introduction of our new Consents Monitoring Officer Helene Low.
As always we appreciate any feedback or ideas that you can send our way. If you know of a friend or neighbour that you would like to be referred to this e-newsletter then please click here.
Bruce Gordon, Chairman
