In Northland, farmers are facing up to natural forces, as the remnants of Cyclone June bring strong winds and heavy rains to many areas.
Farmers are being urged to move stock into sheltered places and are being warned to exercise caution when clearing large trees, and to consult local contractors if itâ€™s too big a job.
The remnants of the cyclone are bringing rain to many areas whose farmers have been hoping to see a cloud for some time, silver lining or not.
Roger Ludbrook, from Northland Federated Farmers, says landowners should exercise caution when working in high winds.
â€œThe winds have been picking up since early this morning, but they arenâ€™t bad enough to blow people over.
â€œOur recommendation from Northland Feds is â€˜for goodness sakes, be carefulâ€™.
Mr Ludbrook says thereâ€™s a chance power could be out in some areas if trees fall across power lines â€“ and landowners should wait until conditions clear before attempting a cleanup.
â€œâ€If you do have trees down, and theyâ€™re near powerlines, use caution at all times.
â€œThe powerlines a hit by trees are our worst fear, unless you have a slip near a road and itâ€™s blocking people off.â€
