DairyNZ chief executive Dr Tim Mackle talks to Dominic George on The Country Early Edition about advice for farmers in the wake of this week's earthquakes.

Dr Mackle says one of the biggest challenges facing the industry this week is the need to milk cows.

He says many rotary sheds in the Culverden area are back in operation after platforms were dislodged during the quake.

Dr Mackle also comments on yesterday's Global Dairy Trade event.
