We all know that droughts can be long and relentless. Look after yourself, family, employees, and keep an eye on your neighbours.

Talk to trusted advisors and those who have survived this before, and make use of the help or support.

Livestock

  • Have a robust and realistic plan and trigger points to take actions. Decisions should be made for animal welfare and farm profitability.
  • Do a feed budget and stick to it, while feeding stock as well as possible.
  • Destocking? Book in as early as possible; in some areas there can be delays of several weeks.
