They have every reason to be chilled out. “I can’t remember a time in my life when everything has been so good,”Mr Barry said. “Since the 70s, that’s how long I’ve been involved in farming.” Mr Barry is referring to the strong cattle market which most farmers agree is as good as it’s ever been. “It seems to get better every time you look around,” he said. “I don’t know where the top is at the moment, it’s just a bit scary how high it’s gone.” Mr Barry is also jubilant about the good rainfall the High Country region has been receiving in recent times which has resulted in lush green paddocks and plenty of feed for the livestock. Penny and Fraser Barry run 400 Hereford breeding cows at Bindi Station who roam the High Country hills along with more than 10,000 sheep. They usually sell weaners from their herd at 10-11 months old. The couple bought another cattle property on the Buchan-Ensay Road, near Ensay, about 12 months ago with 250 Angus cows in calve. “We’re now in the process of building the numbers,”Mr Barry said. It’s provided security and peace for mind for the Barrys who have, in the not so distant past, endured heartbreaking droughts at Bindi Station. While the distance between the two properties is less than an hour, the rainfall at the newly acquired holding is far greater. “The rainfall is totally different on the Buchan-Ensay Road,”Mrs Barry said. “It’s 24mm here (at Bindi Station) and 36mm there.” Continued page 5 Never a better time to be farming

Most of those getting involved have been born and bred in the region and have good knowledge of the industry. Tom King, of Swifts Creek, did his traineeship with Elders Rural Services as a stock agent when he left school some years ago and has now joined Bill Wyndham & Co as a rebate stock agent. Now aged 30, Tom says his four years with Elders in Bairnsdale was a good start in the livestock industry. “I was extremely lucky as they made me travel to different places to work and experience different selling centres under the guidance of various people,”he said. After leaving Elders, Tom took up shearing and has been busily shearing his way around East Gippsland. It’s a job he has been doing for nine years now and when he’s not in a shearing shed somewhere Tom is running an 1800-acre farmhe shares with his wife, Gemma, and her parents, Tracey and Geoff Rendell, who manage the Albion Hotel in Swifts Creek. The farm is predominantly sheep with some beef. Tom says his job as a casual rebate stock agent for Bill Wyndham is a terrific opportunity. “Wyndham’s are a great crew to work for. Michael Capes is a great leader and he is always supportive, positive and helpful about the job,” Tom said. “I liaise and talk to Jake Fullgrabe a lot and bounce ideas off him, which I am grateful for. “I’ve always been very interested in and passionate about livestock farming. “This lead me to the traineeship with Elders and now further down my career path into shearing.“ Tom says one of the interesting aspects of his work is being able to “work with different farmers and learn from them.” “I can then bring home ideas to develop other farming practices at our farm,”he said. Tom completed a wool classers course about two years ago and is hoping to do a bit of classing in the future “as I’m pretty passionate about wool”. He says he’ll keep shearing“until my body tells me to stop”. “I’ve learnt somuch along theway, but still learning every day,”he said.

Having lived on a beef and sheep farm growing up in Lindenow South, Billy had farming in his blood and knew his destiny from a young age. After finishing high school he couldn’t wait to mix it with the livestock. Billy works as a livestock salesman and auctioneer. His auctioneering role, which he enjoys, has seen him sell at stud stock sales in recent times. Billy also relishes the role of going to markets around the region, or out to visit clients scattered across East Gippsland. “No day is ever the same,” he said. “It’s either a matter of going to markets or seeing clients to give themmarketing advice or a handson service, which might be marking calves or something like that.” Billy says in his time in the business, he has never known the markets to be so good. “With the market being where it is at the moment, it’s a good opportunity for people to keep going,” he said. Billy said his favourite part of the job is building a “one-on-one relationship service with clients to ensure they stay with us”. That role sees the 26-year-old out and about, traversing the countryside. “I do a bit of travelling, not only in East Gippsland, but also in the Wellington Shire area,” he said. Billy said he has no plans to go anywhere, having recognised his job embraces a good lifestyle. “I’ve always been focussed on farming. This is where it’s going to be. I’ll keep building contacts and maintaining relationships with clients to build a better reputation.” Connor McCormack is one of the youngest to have joined the industry in recent years. Born and bred in Bairnsdale, Connor started with Nutrien Ag Solutions after finishing year 11 about four years ago. “I love the livestock side of things and I really enjoy working with cattle,” Connor said. He admits prior to leaving school he wasn’t sure whether to take the plunge into a trade, like most of his mates, or enter the livestock game. “I did work experience in both industries,” he said. After having a crack as a plumber, Connor said his work with livestock “won out”. He confessed to always enjoying visiting his grandparent’s farm at Mount Taylor and believes that’s how his love for livestock was fostered. “I feel comfortable working in livestock sales and enjoy the fact that no days are the same.” While on Thursdays you can find Connor at the fat cattle sales in Bairnsdale, every Friday fortnight he’s involved in the store cattle sale. When he’s not at the saleyards, Connor will be out visiting clients and helping them out with marking calves and giving advice. “It’s a real building of the client relationship,” he said. “I enjoy building those friendships with clients, seeing them succeed and watching them grow.” Connor said “it’s never been a better time to be a cattle farmer”. “I’m happy to stay in the industry,” he said, and is full of praise for Nutrien Ag Solutions. “It’s a locally owned franchise but with a global network, so there are such big opportunities to really expand your horizons,” Connor said. “Who knows what’s out there.” Connor McCormack and Billy Trinder are young local lads passionate about working in the livestock industry with Nutrien Ag Solutions in Bairnsdale.

Although there is an abundance of feed around the district, not all fodders are equal when it comes to promoting weight gain. Designing a feed budget now to plan for maximum weight gains will help you fill the gaps with pasture and crops to ensure a consistent season. Whether its for autumn calves you are wanting to run on or to keep spring cows milking for their calves, considering the feed you need to have available at weaning and through the winter is critical to maintain good growth rates. As day length decreases and we head toward autumn, now is the perfect time to consider fodder on hand, what is available in the market place, and what can be grown at home. Completing a feed budget now can save a lot of time and energy later in the season and make the most of the current pricing, helping you concentrate on the other jobs you have throughout the year. MAXIMISE QUALITY OF FODDER BEING BROUGHT IN Although spring has been a bumper season, there has been a lot of opportunistic silage cut. As a result of the tricky spring conditions products better suited to hay have instead been wrapped for silage, so when looking to buy consider feed testing the fodder to assess the quality and where this may fit in your system. If planning on purchasing fodder, consider the pasture that will be on hand when bought in feed is being fed out. In the case where you have a high-quality brassica crop the aim will be to use a good quality hay to slow down the passage through the rumen to ensure the crop or pasture being grazed is not being wasted. Similarly, if you are grazing a high fibre crop such as rye corn the nutrient density is not there so will need to be grazed in conjunction with a better quality product such as annual ryegrass (which can be undersown) or some good quality pasture silage. PLAN SOWING TO FILL HISTORICAL FEED GAPS When planning for pasture renovation, look ahead to the next 1224 months, not just the immediate future of times where fodder will be tight, and plan to plant a break crop to boost dry matter available in these times. This takes good planning as sowing all the same species whether it be annuals and clovers or cereals will leave the same problem in 10 months’ times. A mix of short, medium and longerterm crops planned around your grazing system will have a more sustainable effect than a shotgun approach where everything must be sown today. Concise planning ensures that feed is available at weaning and also ensures it is available to keep cows milking for their calves through the winter so they are nice and sappy come spring sales. FERTILISER As with everything that has come along this past 12 months the price of fertiliser has skyrocketed. Soil test and create a nutrient plan to avoid mining nutrient from the system. Unless your farm is a closed system (nothing being sold off at all) nutrient will need to be replaced through fertiliser whether traditional (such as 3&1) or alternative (chook manure). Regardless of which you choose to use, do the sums beforehand to calculate the true costs and benefits and budget for removal and soil type to ensure it is not being applied where it isn’t going to produce the most return on investment. Soil testing is an excellent way to see if there may be areas in excess and those that are limiting production and can be planned around accordingly. With current fertiliser pricing a soil test becomes even more important to ensure the correct product is being applied. LAST TAKE AWAY It’s not the size of the crop that counts but the quality in it. Use crops accordingly that will maximise weight gains and don’t just focus on tonnages grown because at the end of the day, Metabolizable Energy (ME), Crude Protein (CP) and fibre (NDF) are king when managing dry matter intakes for maximising weight gains. - Liz Semmens, agronomist at Graham’s Seeds Adding legumes such as peas and vetch to a forage cereal can be a great way to boost crude protein levels in your silage or hay.

BEEF WEEK 2022 EAST GIPPSLAND NEWSPAPERS | FEATURE 5 Penny and Fraser Barry on the historic Bindi Station property at Bindi.Mr Barry says he can’t recall a time “when everything has been so good”. K13–6257 From page 1 The couple decided to move 100 of their Herefords to the newproperty to keep the Angus herd company. “We were in a horrendous drought situation here,we kept missing all the storms, so it was just a no-brainer,” Mrs Barry said. While many may have thought the Barrys took a gamble buying a new farm in uncertain times, with the COVID-19 pandemic in full flight, and nervousness still hanging over the financial markets, the couple is glad they did. While the 2500 acres had succumbedwhen the bushfires swept through the area, burning out about 50 per cent of the property, the Barrys recognised the opportunity when it was eventually put on the market. “We had to straighten up all the fences.We had a lot of work to do on the fences, we’re still not finished, but we’ve pulled it into shape pretty quickly,” Mr Barry said. With lamb prices also continuing to rise, the Barrys feel satisfied the purchase has worked out well. While the couple has always had a preference for Hereford cattle - Mr Barry believes they’re “better foragers, particularly in dry times” – they are happy to have the two mobs. “We’ll probably end up with Angus down there and Herefords here just to split the risk a bit I suppose. I don’t know if you call it a risk, we still like Herefords,” Mr Barry said. “We love Herefords,” Mrs Barry said empathetically. “The market aspect of an Angus is always in front,” Mr Barry conceded. “Whether they are any better cattle I don’t know. Take their skin off, their coat off, I’d say it would be very difficult to tell the difference.” Having the two properties allows the Barrys to eliminate the risk. Traditionally, they’ve had to pour a lot of feed into Bindi Station when the climate remains dry. At the Buchan-Ensay Road farm, feed is plentiful. “They actually complement each other fairly well the two places,” Mr Barry said. “It’s a totally different environment down there and very close and handy.” The Barrys employ a full-time station hand who moves between the two properties. Looking toward the future, Mr Barry believes it bodes well for the beef market. “I think it’s pretty good, I can’t see it stopping at the moment, at least not for the next two or three years anyway,” he said. “Everyone’s in the rebuilding game, the whole of Australia is rebuilding, and the fact is that a lot of people are geared a bit more toward cattle than they are sheep.” Cattle, he agrees, are easier work compared with the labour that goes into running sheep. “While the markets stay good, I can’t see the mixes changing very much at all. “It might be a different market if the cattle market falls over.” Beef producers are hoping that won’t happen anytime soon.

The full-time cattle breeder at Trafalgar South’s Absolute Angus has made a name for himself and his brand with high quality research and investment after purchasing his first stud cow in 2010. Three years since Absolute Angus’ first on-farm bull sale, Anthony’s reputation for first-class Angus is only growing ahead of the autumn bull sale (both on-farm and online) on Thursday, April 7. Absolute Angus has 450 breeding cows across numerous properties in the Trafalgar South area and for the first time last year held sales in autumn and spring, where Anthony sold close to 100 bulls. With commercial clients his main focus, Anthony says his experience in the industry with breeding cattle in all weather conditions has him wellplaced when it comes to what makes Angus a quality breed. Anthony has underlined his investment in the stud by purchasing cattle from the best bloodlines available. “I’ve been very conscious of my bloodlines and thought it was very important to get good structure and feet to match what suited my area and what breeders wanted,” he said. To achieve this, Absolute Angus invested heavily in its foundation herd acquiring specially selected pedigree females with desirable traits from leading Angus studs including the 2010 Vermont Dispersal sale, and secured the top priced cow, ForresWilcoola NFJ A18, sired by renowned Angus bull, Lochton Y003, with heifer calf at foot by Banquet Abode A005, at the 2011 Forres Angus Stud female dispersal. “I wasn’t focusing on figures, we wanted to introduce what was important to begin with, not only with the cows but also the sire lines,” he said. Anthony said there are numerous aspects of a cow he studies prior to purchasing, including intramuscular fat, eye muscle area, carcase, birth weight and growth “Growth and carcase is important because when cattle producers are looking to slaughter their cattle, it comes down to weight on scales at the moment,” he said. “When you’re investing in cattle, you want to be able to see their growth rates because the 200, 400 and 600-day growth rates are so important for the final product.” Anthony also says artificial insemination has been a key in the growth of Absolute Angus. “I put that down to their nutrition and their bloodlines because I use some of the best sires in the industry,” he said. “The quality of the meat I would say has driven the popularity of Angus. “Also their hard-doing nature because no matter where you put an Angus cow and bull, their fertility is consistent so they’re good, hardy cattle that can go anywhere. “Obviously a lot of work has gone into getting the meat to this stage, so even though the marketing is easier now, the performance data has helped the breed a lot.” All themeat and potatoes Anthony Pisa (inset), of Absolute Angus, has spent countless hours researching and investing in the best Angust cattle, including stud sire Landfall New Ground N90 (pictured).

In February 2021, their brand new state of the art, hydraulic foot trimming chute arrived from the United States. The new hydraulic foot trimming chute makes the foot trimming process ergonomic for both the cattle and the operator – meaning less stress on everyone and less chance of injury to the animal or trimmer. Dean has more than 15 years’ experience foot trimming and treating lame cows. Growing up on dairy farms in Newry, he began his career as a farm apprentice and was then fortunate enough to begin working under the guidance and expertise of local large animal expert Jakob Malmo. Being taught his trade by Jakob and getting to know international cow lameness expert Karl Burgi personally are a few of the highlights of Dean’s career to date. Dean can trim up to 20 cows an hour in the chute. Lame cows take approximately seven minutes to do. This becomes an important factor when you consider the large herd numbers in some dairy farms. While the chute allows for bulk numbers of cows to be done in a timely fashion – Dean also prioritises visiting lame cows and does many visits out to just a single lame cow. Designed by hoof health expert, Karl Burgi, the hydraulic chute’s leg restraint system received international recognition because the leg position is safe for the cow and ideal for technicians to perform precise trimming procedures. It carefully guides each leg into position, following the natural leg stroke and range of motion - eliminating any stress on the cow, securely holding the leg for effortless assessment of the hoof. The chute enables extremely efficient loading of the cows and the effortless hydraulically synchronised controls do all of the work during animal loading. It then gives the technician an ergonomic work area for trimming the cow’s hoof by raising the platform the cow is standing on to a comfortable working height – reducing manual strains, minimising steps and saving time. Gippsland Hoof Care provide a personalised and affordable hoof trimming and lame cow treatment service for the dairy and beef industries throughout wider Gippsland region. Give Dean a call today to discuss your individual business’s needs. State-of-the-art hoof treatment Dean Rowley has been extremely busy since starting Gippsland Hoof Care in late 2020. (PS)

Along the way, Wattlewood cattle have been praised in the show ring, and in major carcass competitions around Australia, all backed by the experience gained by Fiona when she was the Angus Societies University of Illinois Scholarship recipient. Fast forward to now, the couple are still loving the type of cattle they breed, grow and sell to cattle breeders for them to enjoy and enhance their herd. “I love where we are at with our breeding and sales, and it is terrific to have our bull buyers coming back year after year to get the next generation of genetics,” Fiona said. “The return buyers tell us that we are doing things right.” Wattlewood had a stellar Beef Week in 2021 and are taking it a step further and offering 31 bulls and 20HBR and APR females in the stud’s first on property bull and production sale on Wednesday, March 16, at 4pm.

It offers transparency that is not seen in many other, if any, forms of livestock transactions. Without the auction system prices offered by buyers would be somewhat hidden from the general population and negotiated on an individual basis which could lead to variations. Processors and feed lotters generally look at what price is being achieved in the auction system and set their price based on their supply needs from there. The auction system, through its transparency of open cry auction, offers potential sellers the pricing basis to make educated decisions regarding the best option for the marketing of their livestock, whether it by private treaty, direct to the processor, or consigning to the local livestock exchange. Local livestock exchanges play a very important role in the auction system providing many smaller and larger sellers the opportunity to market their livestock in an open, transparent and cost effective manner. The value it offers to buyers is that the auction system generally offers lots of similar type cattle for them to view, and potentially purchase, which then provides them a logistical saving rather than transporting many smaller lines to fulfill their requirements. Generally larger lines of stock are drafted into pens reflecting their weight, breed and condition which can generate extra competition due to the pens being more suitable to individual buyer’s requirements. ONLINE SELLING There has been a growing popularity in online selling systems in recent years. It should be noted that the most successful of them all – AuctionsPlus - is based on the auction system, albeit via electronic means, still serves the same purpose of it being open and transparent with prices achieved being fully accessible to anyone who wants to know. The other benefit that local livestock exchanges offer, and one I believe to be extremely important in these times, is social interaction. People from large geographical areas generally attend these sales and catch up with old friends and colleagues often the discussion can involve many diverse topics, not related to the market, but involving other aspects of agriculture and the social issues of the day. In the end it all adds up to better mental health and wellbeing as many farmers can be relatively isolated from the people, due to geographical distances and circumstances related to farming. Like community sports, local livestock exchanges provide a reason to leave the farm and offer a period away from the day-to-day toil. If the industry was to lose the auction system, I believe we would see a very different environment for marketing livestock. We’d likely see smaller producers and smaller lots being potentially discounted and more expensive to market in regards to cartage. We would not have the benefit of an open and transparent basis to form the selling price, as well as it being harder for buyers to source suitable lines of replacement stock in a centralised manner. All in all, the auction system has stood the test of time for all types of livestock and while it has had a few hiccups along the way most times when selling livestock it comes down to what they would make at auction as a starting point. Anybody considering selling livestock should contact their preferred livestock agent who will be able to fully discuss their marketing options prior to making a decision about it. - Brad Obst, Nutrien Ag Solutions Value of auction systemand local livestockmarkets Nutrien East Gippsland Livestock’s Brad Obst and Sharp Fullgrabe’s Graeme Fullgrabe announced last November that they will work together.

BALL FLOAT COVER Protects ball float valve Easy access - simply lift the 5mm checker plate lid No more broken valves! No more wasted water! No more stress or worry! When Vikon Precast was conceptualised more than five years ago, quality water troughs were the beginning of a vision. Generational farmers themselves, the owners knew the needs and frustrations of getting reliable water to stock, and set about designing something that was functional, very low maintenance but most of all, tamper proof and durable. The products they build today reflect these requirements in every way. From things as simple as using high grade 40mpa concrete in 80mm thick sidewalls, to the use of reinforcing bar and mesh in every trough, the Vikon range is simply just a cut above. Combine this with the innovative ball valve covers that allow easy access, while eliminating tampering issues from stock, it’s easy to see why Vikon Precast stock troughs are the best in the business. Draining the troughs for cleaning is fast and effortless due to the four-inch drain bung, one of the many unique features that make these the most sought after there is. This quality comes down to an unerring demand to be the best – owner Gordon Painter, who runs the company with his two sons Lachlan and Toby, says that from the very beginning Vikon Precast was about quality over quantity. Knowing that smart producers would realise that their products would deliver lifetime savings of water, labour and maintenance, while improving the value of their property, Vikon Precast began production in 2018 and has never looked back. In five short years they are now seeing returning customers who have nothing but great things to say, and keeping up with demand is now the current challenge. With more than five styles of water trough, each with varying options for filling and myriads of applications from beef and dairy to sheep and equestrian, Vikon Precast’s range is growing rapidly. They are now producing many other agriculture related precast products such as feed troughs and grain, fertiliser and silage bunkers, but at Vikon Precast water troughs are still a mainstay of their operation - just like water is the mainstay of almost every farming operation, and keeping it that way with easy and reliable products is what Vikon Precast is all about. Quality, reliable water troughs Vikon Precast’s range of water troughs is of the highest quality. 16 FEATURE | EAST GIPPSLAND NEWSPAPERS

With space for the family inside in the air conditioner, cargo out back in the tray and 3.5tonne towing capacity for the trailer in tow, what more could you want in a ute? One of Australia’s top-selling utilities just got better, with the 2022 Isuzu D-MAX range updated with new variants, one of the widest selections of body styles, alloy and steel trayconfigurations and a selection of dependable turbo-diesel powertrain options. Not only that, but the range has seen increased capabilities, including an increase in gross combination mass on 4x4 models to 6000kg and a lane support system switch, for the driver to toggle all lane support safety systems on-or-off at the press of a button. Some highlights of the updated 22MY range include alloy or steel tray cab chassis options available across the mid-spec LS-M and LS-U models. For those that want all the bells and whistles, the LS-U+ adds leather-accented upholstery and heated front seats, for a touch more comfort. The already feature-packed flagship XTERRAIN also gains additional levels of refinement, including more creature comforts and a bold black and red interior trim. With convenience at the forefront, LS-U and X-TERRAIN variants are now equipped with a factory-fitted tow bar receiver as standard. Further bolstering the D-MAX’s reputation for being fit-for-purpose, the entry-level SX single cab chassis 4x2 now has the option of being paired with Isuzu’s new RZ4E-TC 1.9-litre turbodiesel engine, a popular choice overseas for supreme fuel efficiency and refined operation. With a payload capacity of up to 1405kg, this variant is set to be the pragmatic choice of those that live by their ute. Peter Dullard Motor Group’s Isuzu D-MAX has evolved and is a perfect farm utility vehicle. (PS)
