Most areas seem to have had a warmer but much wetter winter and some dairy and cattle operations have had their winter management tested.
May your grass grow and your stock do well! Continued selection of the best breeding stock, sourced from a large number of NZ herds combined with a carefully considered breeding program has resulted in excellent genetic diversity in a herd that we are proud of.
Gidday! With winter all but behind us now we are looking forward to spring moving in. We have seen a very wet winter here in the Nelson/Tasman region which was topped off by the extreme rainfall event we saw a couple of weeks ago.
Steve Harris here, having sweltered through our extended summer in the Waikato, Autumn arrived late but quickly.
Autumn has arrived, most have had some rain and some too much. Here in Hawke’s Bay we have had consistent rain this summer and feed is plentiful, a pleasant change from the last couple of non-existent autumns.
Danielle here writing to you from the King Country. Summer time and the living is easy? Some days I’m humming that and other days not so much. Rain fell this week and the hum is back!
I think we are all thankful for the recent rain! There are many topics to cover in this newsletter, so read on.
I have the good fortune to be responsible for the Christmas newsletter this year. Merry Xmas and a wonderful 2022 to you all, it has got to better than 2021!

Spring is here and the grass is finally starting to grow at close to the required rate.
