Summer Ground Cover – Filling the Gap
Wednesday 27th March, 2019 - 08:00 am
Event Category: 

Wheatbelt NRM is working with farmers to take advantage of progress made in the industry to address one of the industry’s most pressing issues, how to feed stock over our dry, dusty summer months.

We now have a range of native and exotic annual and perennial species suited to our soils and rainfall, but we don’t often see them implemented in a whole of farm approach.

Join us for this upcoming FREE event.

Event Highlights

  • The Kilminster Family takes a holistic approach to integrating fit for purpose feed options over different soil types, see how they do it.
  • Retired DPIRD veterinarian and landholder Roy Butler has spent a lifetime studying a systems approach to feeding livestock to maximise health and production benefits.
  • The latest trends in pastures and forage with perennial pasture expert Phil Barret Lennard and Curtin University’s Sue Low.
