Busy month across the region!
23 February 2016
Central Tablelands Local Land Services has served up a smorgasbord of field days, seminars and events during March, keeping local landholders in touch with cutting edge information and practical advice on agriculture and land management.
“It’s been an extraordinarily busy March, and there’s plenty more to come through the rest of autumn and winter,” said Peter Sparkes, General Manager of Central Tablelands Local Land Services.
The month began with paddock walks in Cowra looking at the best methods of controlling noxious weeds, Silverleaf nightshade and blue heliotrope and the impact of climate variability, followed by pre-sowing sessions for croppers at Eugowra and Woodstock.
There were also farm planning and benchmarking days held at Mudgee, Bathurst and Canowindra, and a seminar on climate variability and adaptation at Orange.
Central Tablelands Local Land Services presented information sessions on soil biology and soil and pasture health at Cumnock and Bathurst, followed by a community planting day at Sunny Corner to extend Black Gum habitat along Bob’s Creek, and a Cat Tracker community meeting at Lithgow to explain how residents can get involved in this innovative experiment.
The Women in Productive Pastures network took a trip to investigate composts, biosolids and pasture trials, facilitated by Local Land Services. There was a Vertebrate Pesticide induction course for landholders at Bathurst and a gathering of the Oberon Vertebrate Pest Committee at Capertee to plan and coordinate wild dog baiting and pest control activities in coming months.
“Central Tablelands Local Land Services works with farmers and other land managers in the region to support resilient communities in a productive, healthy landscape.”
“With that end in mind we’re constantly working to provide practical and useful advice and information through field days and other events that promote environmental stewardship and profitable and sustainable production.”
