BetterBeef group tour to New England
In May 2019, Meg Bell arranged a tour to the New England region for five producers from the Western Districts BB group and two producers from the South Eastern Buffalo BB group.
The 5-day tour included a visit to the University of New England (UNE) in Armidale. The UNE is a leading innovator in agricultural studies and applied research.
The group were keen to visit UNE's SMART Farm Innovation Centre (SFIC) to view the different technologies in action and how they may be incorporated into their own farm enterprises.
Other properties visited included 'Glenavon Angus', 'Yalgoo' where Poll Herefords and Merinos are the focus, 'Walcha Dairy' in an area dominated by beef cattle and wool sheep, and 'Congi Station' primarily Merino, with Hereford x Angus as a secondary focus.
