Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

AMI's Driver Reviver - a public event to educate Cantabrians on the connection between driver fatigue and motor vehicle accidents - will take place on Labour Day Monday, October 25.

The event is supported by Fire and Emergency New Zealand, New Zealand Police, St John, Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency, and Hurunui District Council, and will take place at Hurunui River Rest Area, SH1.

All drivers and passengers on the road between 12-4pm are encouraged to stop in for a complimentary snack and drink from the AMI BBQ Trailer, take a rest on a bean bag and visit the activities onsite to learn more about how to curb the effects of driver fatigue, particularly while on long journeys.

Get more from your herd test

LIC

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.

Weatherpro

Brian from Rangiora

Last night on seven sharp a weather man recommended a weather app, weatherpro. I put it on my phone and it changed all my settings. A friend of mine had the same problem. It is also hard to delete. Be wary.
