People who’ve lived in North Otago far longer than I have say they’ve never seen it looking greener.
We’ve had a very wet spring and pastures we can almost see pastures growing.
It’s a case of quantity rather than quality though and milk production is down.
But too much grass, albeit lacking in nutrient value, is better than too little.
Ands to today we woke to blue sky and sunshine which was welcomed by stock, farmers, and everyone involved with the Victorian Heritage celebrations in North Otago.
Today’ I’m grateful for blue sky and sunshine.
