Shortage of supplementary feed in coastal Otago

7:30 am on 16 October 2010

Farmers in coastal Otago are running short of supplementary feed due to awful end of winter conditions.

Country Life reports there's not much quality pasture around because of extensive pugging in paddocks, many of which will need to be re-sown.

Dairy stock are described as 'a bit on the light side' as they head into mating, which is starting next week.
