If you are already certified with any body, this workshop is also a chance to ask more questions, to rub shoulders with others in a similar situation, and to refresh yourself on all processes and procedure to ensure you can make the most out of your certification.

Rich Pasture

This farm is evolving a hay regime from a maize growing history. The soils require considerable rebuilding through nutrient loss in order to offer best quality hay to grow healthier stock.

How do we go about it? What is needed to assess the situation and build up the nutrient rich diversity required for rich soils, rich pastures and a richer farm to produce rich outcomes? We’ll take an in depth look and show you how to apply the results to your own farm.
