Tips to deal with climate
AN upcoming field day at Charters Towers will highlight the results of long- running scientific research into how to deal with Australia’s highly variable climate. The first research paddocks were erected on the Lyons family’s Wambiana Station, southwest of Charters Towers, in 1997. People attending will be able to see the different paddocks and cattle and get solid data on how the profitability of strategies stacked- up in the long term. The field day will be held on August 29.
