Want to know more about paddock plants?
12 November 2014
Producers in the Rylstone area will have the ability to increase their knowledge on local pasture plants at a Paddock Plants Workshop to be held on Tuesday 25th November.
"This spring we have seen many pasture plants in their flowering stage. It gives us an opportunity to investigate what these species are and what value they may have in our landscape", said workshop organizer and presenter Clare Edwards, Pastures Officer with Central Tablelands Local Land Services.
"The workshop will help producers and land managers to be able to recognize some common species and how they might manage them".
"The workshop will cover mainly introduced and native grasses with hands on activities, including a paddock walk", said Ms Edwards.
Participants will also receive a copy of the new book "Grasses of the NSW Tablelands".
Landholders are asked to bring their own lunch, morning tea will be provided. This is a NSW DPI Tocal course presented by the Central Tablelands Local Land Services.
The day will start at 10.30am and finish at 3.00pm. The workshop is free, but there are limited spaces.
Producers are asked to RSVP, and for further information please call Clare Edwards on 0428 435 615 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org
