RANGELAND rehabilitation, soil carbon and property planning will be covered at a field day at White Cliffs, in western New South Wales this week.
The field day at White Cliffs on Thursday 7 July will include presentations from expert speakers and field trips to see some of the theory implemented on rangeland.
The event is being hosted by the Far West Rangeland Rehydration Alliance and supported by a number of stakeholders, including Western Landcare and Western Local Land Services, who offer services and advice in topics featured on the day.
Far West Rangeland Rehydration Alliance spokesperson and Western Landcare executive officer, Louise Turner believes the event will offer landholders a great deal of value and give them plenty to consider with regard to their own farming operations.
“This event is a great opportunity for landholders and anyone with an interest in farming and the environment to hear from experts and see what they preach be put into action.
“As we’ve seen first-hand in the White Cliffs area and the western region more broadly, there are a lot of opportunities with rangeland rehabilitation and soil carbon, so getting the latest updates on these topics can only be a good thing,” Ms Turner said.
“Over several years now a growing number of landholders in the White Cliffs area have become a more focused on the landscape and what we can do to make improvements to them so they are at their full capacity from a producer’s perspective and from an environmental standpoint.”
“After a number of tough years with the drought we have seen some great results over the last couple of years which is giving us the drive to continue on down this path,” she said.
The event commences at 10 am at the Town Hall in White Cliffs, with a field trip to get underway at 3:15 pm and finish back at the Town Hall by 5:15 pm. All attendees are invited to remain for dinner at the White Cliffs hotel.
