Solutions for or­ganic grains

Tasmanian Country - - THE STOCK REPORT -

THE Tas­ma­nian Or­ganic Net­work and Cra­dle Coast Nat­u­ral Re­source Man­age­ment are hold­ing an in­for­ma­tion evening on or­ganic grain pro­duc­tion on Wednesday.

The event is on from 6pm at the Cra­dle Coast Au­thor­ity of­fice in 1-3 Spring St, Burnie.

Re­gional Land­care fa­cil­i­ta­tor and sus­tain­able agri­cul­ture ex­ten­sion of­fi­cer Tom O’Mal­ley from Cra­dle Coast NRM said the ris­ing num­ber of or­ganic dairy farms in the state’s North and North-West meant it was be­com­ing dif­fi­cult to source or­ganic Tas­ma­nian grain as a sup­ple­men­tary feed dur­ing tougher pas­ture sea­sons.

Mr O’Mal­ley said the event aimed to pro­vide a net­work­ing space and fo­rum for dis­cus­sion for pro­duc­ers.
