The location of the field day is on the slopes of Mount Alexander (Lanjanuc). This sheep property uses rotational grazing system works for them as they work full-time jobs in Bendigo. The system is not only producing quality sheep, it is also improving the landscape. The focus of this afternoon is the grazing and how the strategies being used are promoting biodiversity, weed reduction, soil health and dam water health. The session will include a paddock walk and discussion. Once registered, the property address will be sent to you prior to the event.

Everyone is welcome to come along and learn from each other and discuss how your property is progressing thru the season. Topics covered at past events have varied from fencing techniques and equipment, tree planting, water infrastructure, animal and breeding choices, weed management and the list continues.

Be aware this is an outside event, so make sure you wear appropriate clothing and footwear, and a minor level of fitness and mobility is required.
