Field day a big hit

NOTMAN Pasture Seeds held a farm field day at Poowong last Wednesday, which attracted more than 400 farmers and featured a guest appearance from long distance runner Steve Moneghetti.
Adam Fisher from Notman Pasture Seeds said the field day went well.
“The objectives of the day were to make sure we got leading farmers and consultants along with ourselves together to deliver practical farming issues,” he said.
“They had an intensive look over pasture trialing and evaluation systems so the farmers can select the right grass to economically benefit their farm.
“We also looked at cropping systems with myself, Matt Hall and local dairy farmer David Barry.”
Mr Fisher said local consultant John Mulvany and western Victorian consultant Chris Hibburt discussed summer feeding of cattle and the returns, along with long term implications of the feeding.
“So the main objectives were to bring the most up to date information to farmers. The feedback from the field has been overwhelming,” he said.

Young locals: Tristan Zuidema, Callum Moscript and Shane Zuidema from Leongatha South were learning a thing or two at the Notman Pasture Seeds field day last Wednesday.
