BWBL Willaura New Zealand tour
In June 2019, Steve Cotton arranged a tour for the Willaura BWBL group to look at Merino systems in New Zealand. Thirteen producers took part in the tour.
The 5-day tour started in Christchurch and finished in Queenstown and on average 4 properties were visited each day.
A big 'take home message' for the group was the New Zealander's approach to feed. Through winter, different stock feeds, such as rye corn, kale and swedes are grown.
