NSW Managing Drought Guide
The latest NSW Managing Drought Guide has been prepared to give NSW primary producers relevant information to help them make informed decisions on how to effectively manage the impacts of the current drought, as well as future extended dry spells. This guide reflects the unique pressures placed on NSW producers before, during and after drought and includes strategies and actions that farmers can consider as they deal with its effects on their businesses.
It also includes information on relevant resources from the NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) and Local Land Services (LLS), practical information on feeding livestock, farm management and sustainable practices, as well as personal and financial well being.
