Excerpt courtesy of the Gloucester Advocate;
The main aim of the workshop is to provide information to help farmers manage their financial costs, feed shortages, ongoing low prices and manage stock condition.
LLS district vet Digby Rayward said. “At these workshops we’ll talk about the current conditions and options, and what producers should be considering for the months ahead as we go into winter”.
“With the current ‘green drought’ conditions, producers need to plan ahead for winter in case the follow up rain doesn’t come.”
“Without doubt, ongoing drought conditions cause financial and mental stresses on all of us and advice on these issues will also be covered.” he said

  • managing native re-growth to maintain native vegetation
  • planting corridors
  • fencing and conserving valuable bushland or waterways
  • managing livestock impact on sensitive areas
  • managing feral animals
  • weed control for improved native vegetation
