Feed coordination service

https://www.odt.co.nz/rural-life/rural-people/finding-feed-farmers-need

Wednesday, June 17, 2020

Author: Terri Anderson

Sharon Cousins, of Balclutha, is one of four temporary feed co-ordinators appointed by the Ministry for Primary Industries.  Ms Cousins covers the Otago and Southland area while Tammy Johnson, who is based at DairyNZ, Lincoln, is the South Island feed co-ordinator. Two others are based in the North Island. The feed service is an initiative set up by the Feed Working Group, an MPI and industry collaboration to manage the impacts of drought and Covid-19.  However, the continuation of the service is subject to a decision by MPI early next month,  after it evaluates whether it is still needed.
