While dry times come and go, nothing can fully prepare farmers for drought. Over the last few years, parts of NSW have experienced hard winters, high temperatures and low rainfall over summer and autumn.
Local Land Services staff have been assisting landholders in managing livestock and pastures as the seasons have worsened. We will continue to work alongside farmers to cope through these tough conditions.
How Local Land Services can help
Whether you’ve got a question about feed rations, a query about sowing or maintaining pastures, or a complex animal health issue, Local Land Services can help.
The Drought handbook PDF, 1191.96 KB includes advice and personal thoughts from Local Land Services staff, links to online resources, and other support available to landholders.
This guide is produced specific to the Central Tablelands Local Land Services region, but may also have useful drought advice for your situation.
If you have any questions or need support, please contact your Local Land Services office.
