Wheatbelt NRM will be part of the agenda at the upcoming Sheep and pastures Field Day to be held at the Dempster family’s Karabein Poll Stud. We will be sharing progress on our Mixed Farming project as well as discussing what the planned outcomes are and what benefits our Wheatbelt farmers could gain.
There’s a great line up of speakers that are highly relevant to mixed farmers including Phil Barrett Lennard, who is developing summer ground cover plans with our demonstration farmers. It’ll be a great day out and if you are in the market for a new ram, there will be stud stock available for sale by private negotiation.
