Monthly Tip

Dairy Farmers

Keeping Cows Healthy this Spring

  • This Spring, don’t get hit with a late rush of retained foetal membranes. If you are using short acting injectable selenium remember that it only retains levels high enough to reduce retained membranes for 4 weeks.

Sheep & Beef Farmers

  • Lamb Survival:There are many factors that can affect lamb survival and these can often be easily influenced. Firstly where possible, lamb your multiple bearing ewes on paddocks with less than 25 degrees slope, with no water hazards and good shelter.


  • Selenium – to give or not to give…Selenium is a trace element found in the soil and is taken up by plants.  It is deficient in many parts of NZ, and horses grazing these pastures can be similarly deficient.

Working Dog

Although August 1st is traditionally the first day of spring the winter weather tends to linger well into September so ways to keep your working dogs warm during cold weather can be relatively simple and easy to do:

Pet Owners

  • Spring Irritations

    September is the start of Spring and with the new grass growth we begin mowing our lawns a lot more frequently.
