Management notes


The recent good weather has been very useful to get winter spraying up to date, to get fertiliser applied and to get some planting done, writes Andy Doyle.


Heavy rainfall in recent days has led to a return to grazing challenges and producers need to keep on top of grass supplies to ensure they do not run into any issues down the track, says Darren Carty.
