Are you prepared for el niño?

With the Bureau of Metrology declaring that the 2015 El Niño is strengthening, farmers are expecting lower rainfall and temperature extremes. While El
Niño cannot be guaranteed, it may be useful to put some back up plans into place.

  • To ensure you are prepared for the climatic changes the El Niño may bring, it is important to sit down with someone in your family or staff to plan
    for potential drought and resource shortages, including:
  • A feed budget and alternative options if fodder becomes less available
  • Alternative sources of fibre to fill a shortfall in your region; and
  • How a warm and dry spring could affect your operations in the longer term.

For more information about El Nino preparedness, see Dairy Australia’s Preparing for Drought and El Niño conditions webpage.
