Maize silage helping with calf feeding plans

Rural Exchange 21/07/2018

It has been a tough year for farmers in the Taranaki region with an extremely dry summer and the threat of Mycoplasma bovis.

Now it’s time to knuckle down with one of the most important, yet stressful times to get those in the region up for the season.

Pioneer Brand Products South Taranaki area manager Kim Sharpe joined Rural Exchange to discuss the key focus points of calving, how farmers are prepared for spring/summer, and how maize silage fits in to feeding plans this time of the year.
