Mallee Farmers can jump on the phone or online to chat with Agriculture Victoria land and livestock experts over the next few weeks.
The Mallee Corner Post – a series of phone-in and Zoom sessions to support farmers in the region with information and advice relevant to the season will start up from 16 August and run until 25 August.
Agriculture Victoria Livestock Extension Officer Erica Schelfhorst and Land Management Extension Officer Darryl Pearl, along with other technical specialists, will be available for each 30-minute information session to answer questions and offer their expertise.
There will also be an opportunity for farmers to discuss issues with other farmers and individual follow-up sessions are available.
“Maybe you’ve sown late this year and are wondering how you can get your crop through the spring? These are the types of practical questions we’re keen for farmers to bring to these sessions,” Mr Pearl said.
“Or maybe you’re grazing crops and pastures and you’ve had some stock health and nutrition questions come up? That’s the sort of thing we’re hoping to help with,” Ms Schelfhorst said.
