Not to be missed, this seminar will cover a range of topics to help you plan ahead. 

This event is kindly supported by the Rural Support Trust.

Dinner provided. 

​Speakers and topics

  • Marjan Sprock and Ariane Prichard (West Coast Vets) will discuss animal health topics including BVD management and control, and internal parasite resistance.

  • Rebeca Nind (OSPRI) will present the latest information on the NAIT scheme and farmer responsibilities around this.

  • Tom Fraser will lead a discussion on planning for next year’s winter crops. While it may seem that this is a long way off, now is the time to start planning to achieve yields as close to potential as possible. Topics being covered include – paddock selection, fertiliser requirements (what and when) and what species to sow depending on stock class.
