Spore counts

January 18, 2013

Welcome to 2013 everyone. It is that time of year again where we start to monitor grass samples for spore counts. Each week we will send out an email bulletin to farm clients to let them know the counts we have taken for the week and the district spore count readings. If you are not currently on our mailing list and would like to be, please contact the clinic on 07 888 8197. Our website will also be updated to reflect the bulletin.

14.1.13 – Hinuera East = Nil, Peria = 5,000 (low), Tirau = 15,000 (low)

18.1.13 – Turanga-o-moana = Nil

District counts for the week ending 11th January 2013 were: Matamata – Nil, Piako – 5,000 (low) and South Waikato – 3,000 (low). District counts for this week weren’t available at the time the bulletin was sent.

Remember to see us first for all your zinc requirements:

  • Zinc Oxide for drenching
  • Zinc Sulphate for water treatment
  • ProMin Balance/Zinc for in-shed feeding
  • Faceguard Zinc Boluses

If you haven’t already done so, we recommend starting low dose zinc treatments now!
