Hi there Coromandel,
What are some of your water conservation tips and tricks?
The Thames-Coromandel District Council is enforcing a sprinkler ban while water levels suffer as a result of the influx of domestic tourists visiting the region. Whitianga recorded its hottest temperature in January since records began in 1962 with high temperatures also recorded in the Firth of Thames.
The council's Emergency Management Unit Manager Garry Towler said that while there'd be some rain and moderate downpours forecast from now until February, it would not be enough to ease restrictions. "We also have the latest data from the Waikato Regional Council to indicate the summer dry period will have long legs and extend through March and into April."
Share your water conservation tips and hacks below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comment featured in the conversations section of the Hauraki Herald.

Read about this Dunedin cafe where vegetables from the kitchen has been grown by the owner. The staples of pumpkins, beetroot, cabbage and carrots do well here, he says, with a wide variety of other crops including spring onions, kohlrabi, celery, fennel, kale, potatoes, silverbeet, leek, mint and herbs. Yummy!
Add milk pregnancy testing to your next herd test, it’s the convenient way to tell if your girls are expecting after 28 days – without them knowing.
But why stop there? Combining animal health checks to your herd test could uncover subclinical Staph aureus, Johnes disease, those who produce A2/A2 milk, as well as your herd’s production worth (PW) to help you make better calls.
Talk to your Agri Manager about adding pregnancy or animal health checks to your next herd test.
