Free trees, service and independent advice at the Australian National Field Days

The Central Tablelands Local Land Services team are on deck at this week’s Australian National Field Days, showcasing the agency’s agriculture, biosecurity and natural resource management services and expertise.

District vets and Local Land Services officers are on hand to field questions on livestock and land management at field day site C19-23, at Borenore west of Orange from Thursday 25 – Saturday 27 October, 2018.

“We’ll be on site throughout the three days and we’re looking forward to catching up with local landholders at one of the country’s premier field day events,” said Local Land Services Veterinarian, Lucienne Downs.

Apart from the quality, independent advice and information on offer on agricultural and natural resource management, landholders have extra incentives to visit the Local Land Services site, with the chance to go in the draw for services worth up to $500.

The competition is open to anyone who owns or operates an agricultural business larger than 10 hectares in size within the Central Tablelands Local Land Services region.

If you can’t make it to the field days, you can still be in the Local Land Services prize draw by filling out our survey online

“There’s also a free native tree give away after you tell us what services you would like to see us provide in a short questionnaire,”said Lucienne Downs.

“In return for your feedback at the Local Land Services stand, each business that completes the questionnaire will receive five native shrubs to plant on their property.”

“We’ll also be holding presentations on topical issues such as Q fever, livestock drenches, and biosecurity and pest Management, and we’ll have displays and information on everything from Local Land Services land management incentive funding, through to footrot and regional weed plans.”

“We’d love landholders to come along and have a chat, and find out more about the vast array of services our organisation has to offer on soil health, pastures, water, biosecurity, pest management and cultural heritage.”

While you’re at the Local Land Services field day site you can also sign up for the Central Tablelands Local Land Services monthly e-newsletter, the Tablelands Telegraph, which provides information about workshops, field days, training, funding opportunities and seasonal advice.
