It’s a growing trend for people to swap their urban lifestyles for the chance to live off the land on lifestyle blocks in the country. Most want to rear stock for consumption or simply for the pleasure that owning animals can bring. The high number of lifestyle blocks in our district and the demand among owners for information on how to better manage pasture and successfully feed stock has prompted us to host seminars on these topics.
Our seminars educate owner/operators on how to get the most out of their lifestyle blocks. Previous events have highlighted what’s involved in growing highly productive pastures, soil fertility and common animal health problems affecting livestock and how to control them.
Please check back for information on the next Lifestyle Seminar, or phone us on 0800 838 7267 for further information.
