Farm consultant Bruce McCorkindale and geneticist Tim Bryne explain why the quest for an efficient ewe depends on the individual farmer’s requirements.
Facial eczema has been a scourge on North Island farms this year but could have been worse for many if it had not been for FE-tolerant genetics. Attempts are being made to put numbers around the cost of FE.
