Tom Fraser: Back to Basics

April 9, 2020

In our second chat with Tom, following on from his ‘Tactics for Tough Times’ advice, we talk about longer term farm management. Tom’s advice is simple – stick to the basics. But what does he mean by that, and what are the basics? We talk about understanding animal requirements, managing complex sheep and beef systems successfully, feed planning, assessing pastures and feed, and much more.
