Hill country – backbone of the Manawatu economy

The hill country between Feilding and Taihape carries a huge number of breeding cows and ewes, filling the Feilding saleyards week after week. Good returns for Lamb ($8/kg+) and Beef ($6+) have boosted confidence and this is seen by the amount of new fencing underway and fertiliser making its way back into the budget.

Richard and I were showing people around a new listing at Kimbolton yesterday and great to hear the roar a topdressing plane for the entire 2 hours. Snapped this short video – the farm being flown on is one we sold at Auction about 3 years ago and we were across the valley.
