Rd1 Offers Support To Flood-Affected Farmers

New Zealand's largest rural supplies company RD1 is lending a helping hand to flood-affected farmers by offering stock feed at significantly reduced prices.

The relief package, offered in conjunction with Hunter Grain & J Swap Contractors, is available to all farmers in the eastern Bay of Plenty. Stock feed is being discounted to a price of $ 253.75 (excl gst) per metric tonne, including delivery.

Regional Operations Manager - Eastern Darryn Morrison said feed shortages were a major problem for flood-affected farmers.

"The flooding could not have come at a worse time for them. They have a real struggle on their hands to maintain good condition in their herds, but this package will go some way towards helping them achieve that.

Mr Morrison says farmers affected by the floods will need ongoing support over the coming months, and the company was already looking ahead to what it could do further down the track.

"We are relocating a number of technical advisors to the eastern Bay of Plenty region specifically for advice and assistance on re-grassing. Local RD1 Technical Sales Representative Brent Hewlett can be contacted where this assistance is required on 0274 834395."

Farmers who require assistance on any other flood related issues can contact their local RD1 store for further details.

Stock feed can be ordered at RDI Opotiki on Church Street, RD1 Edgecumbe in Riverslea Mall, RD1 Galatea on Horomanga Road and RD1 Te Puke on Jellicoe Street.
