Extended dry conditions across much of Tasmania during spring resulted in less pasture growth and a shortage of feed in many areas going into what is forecast to be a hot and dry summer. Key decisions need to be made now by producers on how they will manage the feed requirements of their livestock during the coming season. Macquarie Franklin have developed an information sheet for our clients which outline some of the options and strategies:
