More support for drought affected North Canterbury.

Primary Industries Minister Nathan Guy has today met with drought-affected farmers in Cheviot.

He says they’re still feeling the impacts of drought, having missed most of the recent rainfall.

Mr Guy says because of this, an additional $20,000 is being allocated to the North Canterbury Rural Support Trust.
