Hot weather welcomed after rain

Harriet Fenn and Nathan Armstrong, of Armstrong Ag and baleage, are making the most of this week’s spell of hot weather.

The team was doing whole crop barley baleage at Mount Campbell Station in Central Otago yesterday, where the temperature was creeping into the 30s.

The hot weather was welcomed after the recent heavy rain, Mr Armstrong said.

"The rain is definitely putting a lot more enthusiasm back into the farmers."

Now Central Otago’s weather had settled and dried out there was a lot more time in the day for farmers because they were no longer having to shift water, he said.
