The fishing was great we caught, Gurned, Blue Cod and SHARKS although the locals call these 'dog fish' ;). After the fishing we hauled some ...

... writing up the audit report from our visit to the Nelson plant. I also offered to write up another report but soon realised this was a mistake after seeing Gary’s handwriting, translating it was a challenge in itself! On Wednesday and Thursday I helped with the Deer Progeny Testing trial, which is a trial ran by AgResearch and Alliance to find which breeds produce the best quality venison. On the day of slaughter, data is collected on length of ...
