Northland still very dry

7:52 am on 27 February 2010

Conditions are still very dry in Northland where the last rain was about three weeks ago.

Country Life reports stock are being shuffled around to find water on farms where dams and streams are dry.

Weaner cattle are selling well: big autumn calves are fetching $850 - $940 and spring ones $650 - $750.
