Keep on farming

Keep on farming

In a crazy week of storms and outages, about 60 farmers still attended the annual Gippsland Agricultural Group (GAgG) results dinner last Thursday.
“The theme for the dinner was ‘Just Keep Farming’,” GAgG general manager, Jen Smith, said.
“Agriculture in Australia has thrown us some high highs and some low lows.
“With so much market pressure and some of the strangest seasonal  conditions in 50 years, as well as a colossal increase in input costs it’s been a challenging year.
“But work at the Gippsland Research Farm will continue into soils, pastures, grains, fodder crops and livestock to better understand farming in our region and improve productivity in our own systems.”
Jen encouraged interested people to check out all the demonstrations and trial results on the GAgG website under the publications tab.
