Wimmera hay workshops
Wimmera farmers and advisers will be able to attend hay workshops in the region next month.
Agriculture Victoria and Wimmera Farming Network are running the workshops at Winiam, Wallup, Noradjuha and Navarre.
The workshops will feature fodder expert Colin Peace of Jumbuk Consulting, along with Agriculture Victoria’s seasonal risk agronomists Dale Boyd and Dale Grey.
Agriculture Victoria land management extension officer Heather Drendel said the workshops would give farmers confidence to include hay as a planned enterprise in their crop rotations. Mr Boyd will discuss the latest soil moisture measurements for the region and Mr Grey will provide an update on the spring climate forecast.
The workshops will be at Winiam Hall from 2pm to 5pm on September 16; Wallup Hall from 9am to noon and Noradjuha Hall from 2.30pm to 5pm on September 17; and Navarre Recreation Reserve from 9.30am to noon, September 18.
