Live­stock op­por­tu­nity

AgLife - - News -

While grain pro­duc­tion dom­i­nates much of the agri­cul­tural land across the re­gion, live­stock re­mains an in­te­gral part of the broad­acre farm­ing scene.

Much of the re­gion was opened by pi­o­neer­ing farm­ers for its abil­ity to pro­vide pas­ture for sheep, which helped form the bedrock of Aus­tralian wealth and pros­per­ity. It is a fact far from lost on the Wim­mera Machin­ery Field Days com­mit­tee, which has an ex­clu­sive Live­stock Block at this year’s event.

The Live­stock Block fea­tures lead­ing ex­am­ples from sheep studs in the re­gion along with pro­fes­sional reared and trained work­ing dogs demon­strat­ing their skills.

The Live­stock Block pro­vides farm-an­i­mal pro­duc­ers with an op­por­tu­nity to meet in­dus­try ex­perts to dis­cuss ev­ery­thing from han­dling equip­ment to health man­age­ment and pro­fes­sional breed­ing.
