Workshops to discuss business decisions with lower allocations

By Rodney Woods

In the face of greater water uncertainty this autumn, Murray Dairy is hosting workshops on how dairy businesses are progressing with
lower allocations.

Facilitated by Brian Crockart, from CRC AgriSolutions, farmers from the Riverina will share their experiences after consecutive zero allocation seasons — what has worked and the lessons they learned.

The panel members will also share their plans for autumn.

Agronomist Luke Nagle, of Advanced Ag, will discuss pasture and crop management for the most valuable use of your water, including considerations for sowing dry.

Mr Nagle will also share his expertise on bringing sacrifice paddocks back into production.

The workshops will be held at:

¦ Cohuna: Wednesday, February 12 at the Cohuna Football Netball Club, Island Rd, Cohuna, from 10.30 am to 1.30 pm.

¦ Cobram-Barooga: Thursday, February 13 at the Cobram Barooga Golf Club, Golf Course Rd, Barooga, from 6.30 pm to 9.30 pm.

¦ Kyabram: Monday, February 17 at the Kyabram Club, 82 Allan St, Kyabram, from 10.30 am to 1.30 pm.

There is no cost to attend and meals are provided.
