IHC needs your calf

28 April 2019 at 6PM

IHC is calling for people to donate their calves this year, after what was an incredibly challenging season for the rural sector because of Mycoplasma bovis.

IHC National Manager Fundraising Greg Millar says the Calf and Rural Scheme will continue, and this year is more important than ever.

“Farmers still managed to raise $650,000 for people with intellectual disabilities – and despite falling short of our $1 million target, it was great to see the rural community continue to support our cause,” says Greg.

“While the process of the scheme has changed, its purpose has not – to make a real difference to the lives of people with intellectual disabilities, particularly those living in rural communities.

Greg says now, more than ever, we need your support.

“This year the scheme is off to a good start and we have already started to receive pledges of calves,” says Greg.

“Farmers are now asked to arrange transport of their IHC calves, along with their own calves, going to the sales.

“Many farmers have told us they prefer this system as it is more convenient to send the calf or calves at a time that suits them.

“The sale of that particular tagged calf will be donated to IHC from any sale yard in New Zealand.

“If you aren’t able to send your calf or calves to sale with your own lot, IHC can pay to get it there, you just need to organise this with your local transporter and let us know.”

IHC would like to thank the ongoing support of PGG Wrightson Livestock, who for more than 30 years, has provided such generous and unwavering support.

For those who wish to donate in lieu of a calf, the IHC Virtual Calf Scheme option is still available via our website www.ihc.org.nz/calf or phone 0800 442 500.
