    Antibiotic failures.

    Not sure not had any experience of it thankfully. Had a mate fail last year had the call very quickly after the tanker left his place at 3am may have been coincidence tho. Had a 2am phone call from fonterra once my heart sank. Turns out the chiller on the 2nd vat failed and they...

    Cows eating stones

    What are they wintered on? Get some out to look at your cows and do some blood work.

    tractor hire with operator

    Your getting them unfortunately it's just not what you want to hear.... Fencing is a whole other trade in itself. It's not simply a case of hooking on a driver to the tractor and banging away. Might be worth working along side a top fencer for a few years and then go on your own. You won't...
