Horses still more efficient than tractors

Rural Exchange 15/04/2018

Most of the tractor work at Erewhon Station is done by a team of Clydesdales, with stock work carried out on foot or on horseback.

Colin Drummond, this week’s Character of the Country, sees it as a cost-efficient way of getting the crops in the ground and getting around the station safely.

Mr Drummond joined Rural Exchange ahead of the NZ Ploughing Championships in Thornbury, Southland.
