Drought recovery grant – Northland

The Drought Recovery Grant - thanks to funding from MPI - has now closed. If you still have animal welfare issues due to extenuating circumstances from the drought or Covid-19, we may be able to help – please email: [email protected] with ‘Drought Recovery Grant eligibility’ in the subject line.

I can’t source feed, who can help?

Feed coordinators have been appointed by MPI to help connect farmers with available sources of feed. They are working with the primary sector groups and trusts in each region. Farmers and livestock owners can register by completing the 'Feed Coordination Service - I Need Feed' form

To use this service, you need to have a feed budget for the next few months so that they can help you get through.

I have extra feed, how can I help?

If you have feed to donate or sell, complete the Feed Coordination Service - I Have Feed to Sell or Donate form and an MPI feed coordinator will be in touch.

I don’t have a feed plan, how do I get one?
