Drought, flooding & M. bovis - it's been a tough run for farmers lately

Rural Exchange 28/01/2018

DairyNZ says it’s been a tough time for dairy farmers lately.

For some, there are signs that it’s beginning to take a toll on their well-being.

Many farmers, from one end of New Zealand to the other, have had a rough few months - if it’s not been a flood or drought conditions, then it’s been understanding how to protect their farms from the Mycoplasma bovis outbreak in the South Island.

Dana Carver, wellness and well-being programme leader at DairyNZ talks to Rural Exchange.
