Tips from farmers for winter storms

June 2019

Monday, June 17, 2019

Author: Terri Anderson

Before snow hits

  • Keep an eye on climate predictions and talk to your neighbours.
  • Plan how you will deal with no power (no electric fences, pumps, milking, refrigeration, hot water, cook or heating). If necessary, source a generator.
  • Stockpile what you might need for home and farm to minimise travel:
    • Surplus feed
    • Generators
    • Food and alternative means of cooking and heating for your home
    • Emergency kit.
  • Have a battery-powered radio.
  • Have a smartphone, and know how to use it and how to charge it up in the car
  • If you need to travel any distance, make sure you are well-equipped for the cold and let someone know where you are and when to expect you back.
  • Have a flexible feed plan underway for stock.
  • If you know it’s coming, move stock to sheltered paddocks, especially young stock, to reduce exposure.
  • Make sure stock can access food and water, and you can access them.

Lance Burdett article in Farmers' Weekly

Wednesday, May 08, 2019

Author: Terri Anderson

Perhaps the biggest hinderance to farmers' wellbeing is their lack of social life, says former police crisis negotiator Lance Burdett, who has begun his tour of the South Island to encourage wellness.
