Feeding stock and growing crops event in the Millewa
4 September 2019
With dry conditions predicted to continue over the next few months Agriculture Victoria is holding a free community event in the Millewa to provide expert advice and information to assist farmers with their decision making.
Agriculture Victoria North West Dry Seasonal Conditions Coordinator Rob O’Shannessy said the event was open to all farmers from across the Millewa and would cover a range of topics to help guide them to make informed and early decisions.
“The event will look at feeding livestock and making decisions on livestock management, planning next year’s crops and managing your soils – with presentations from expert speakers from Agriculture Victoria and others organisations in the area,” Mr O’Shannessy said.
