Southland farmers are being advised to keep a close watch on cows that have been grazing on swede crops in the Southland region after reports of illness, and in some cases death, on dairy farms.
As a major supplier, PGG Wrightson Seeds is working closely with the Southland farming community and other industry groups to gain a better understanding of the issue.
PGG Wrightson Seeds has issued a press release today (copy attached) with recommendations for dairy farmers that may be experiencing issues.
