Slow Recovery After Dry

07-05-2008 | webmaster

It's a month now since they got rain around Taihape after a prolonged period of dry, that also affected many other deer farming areas, but farmers are finding the pasture is slow to respond. "The pasture is green but it's open and patchy," reports local Deer Farmers' Association Chair Andrew Peters. The hillier country has been particularly badly affected. Taihape generally has a climate and fertile soils that have made it well suited for breeding operations, including deer. The DFA branch runs weaner sales in April every year, and this year will run a supplementary sale on May 28. In the meantime, farmers are carefully assessing their plans for winter feeding.
