If farmers shared some of their business with average new zealanders (ie jobs or shares) then i would be happy to work or chuck money their way. to help build water tanks/pipes/hoses, plant trees and make shelter for the animals. Farmers need to help new zealanders by making jobs or shares in order for us to help them!

I would have to go alone with the last post as well we are in Taumarunui we are dry and only have water for about 1 week left in ou tank and that will go to our stock before we get it.

They do sell Latte's and Cappuchino's in Hawkes Bay so you should not suffer any withdrawal symptons.
Federated Farmers says a forecast payout of $7/kg of milk solids will offset the hit to the economy caused by the drought.
It's no surprise that Auckland and Christchurch have come out on top in the latest regional economic rankings.
Milk Pride, facing 625 of charges of animal neglect, is an "exception, rather than the rule", says Federated Farmers.
Despite all the rain in many parts of the country yesterday, there are still areas in drought.
