Autumn & Winter News 2020
After surviving quite a diverse year, recording one of the worst widespread drought and bushﬁres on record and swine fever breathing down our necks—2019 will be memorable to say the least.
Early 2020 (huge relief) the rain came, with ﬂooding in some regions drowning crops, while on other properties, the dams are still empty.
Soon, the pasture returned with gusto, along with weeds and insect pests. In particular, buﬀalo ﬂy in numbers not seen previously in this region and still a problem as we enter Autumn. Happily with some cooler nights, this problem will soon be extinguished. Meanwhile, we have a variety of products available (tags, sprays, pour-on & back rubs), to assist with buﬀalo ﬂy control.
Seasonal worming and tick treatments achieve best results in autumn to reduce pasture egg burdens for the spring rise. It’s also important not to forget to vaccinate any weaners retained in the herd to prevent later losses.
Now with maturing pastures, it might also be prudent to consider which live-stock supplements work best for your enterprise during the coming months ie: liquid, molasses-based (Rumifeed), lick blocks (Agricon) or dry eg. Kewpie Dry Lick or your own Custom Mineral Mix.
I don’t wish to dwell on Covid19, but as we are now experiencing the restrictions that come with a world pandemic, there are a few points to remember.
