Free field day from Brunswick Valley Landcare

BRUNSWICK Valley Landcare is hosting a free field day that will include visiting seven cattle grazing farms with a variety of different breeds including Brahmans, Murray Grey, Herefords, Angus, British whites and cross breeds.

Everyone is welcome to attend and the field day will be particularly interesting for anyone who is just starting out in farming or if you are interested in different breeds of cattle.

We will be visiting a range of different farm sizes from a few hundred acres to small holdings and the farmers vary from having decades of experience to those new to the industry.

Tina Sweeney who owns a small property in Myocum said she was looking forward to the field day.

"We only have a small property but we work with a group of neighbours on a paddock rotation bases to ensure healthy happy cows," Ms Sweeney said.

"I studied an agricultural course last year and I am looking forward to sharing my newfound knowledge at our farm, Myuna."

Wendy Gibney from Brunswick Valley Landcare said the field day focused on learning from farmers and everyone who comes along will have the opportunity to talk to the farmers about their breed of cattle and any other farm issues. 

"We will also have lots of free brochures and fact sheets available about a variety of topics including cattle health, weeds, soil and pest animal control," Ms Gibney said.

This project is supported by Brunswick Valley Landcare through funding from the Australian Government.
