Dry time farming, an import-ant topic in any farming situa-tion, was on the table at Genoa last week.
Presenters and attendees met at the Genoa Hall for a presentation then took part in two paddock walks, one in a pasture paddock and one in a cropped paddock.
Ensay agronomist, Nicole Frost, assisted with agronomy, pasture and crop species selection, Brad Smith assisted with on-farm ap-plications, equipment, paddock preparation and his experiences and Jen Smith spoke about 'Know your number' in regards to carbon farming.
Presenter Brad Smith, who farms at Tambo Crossing and Bengworden, said while he had spent the 'best part of a decade making mistakes with establishing perennial pastures', he hoped farmers could put some of the in-formation from his wins and losses to good use.
