Term 3 is going to be extremely busy for our Scholarship Students in the lead up to their main event, the RASV Melbourne Show.
All the teams are now in a position where they can lead their animals on a halter. This will take considerable time and practice to thoroughly gain the trust and obedience of their animals so that they present well and have total control of them at the show.
It is more of a commitment for the cattle scholars than the sheep as they are larger and take more discipline. However, the presentation of all the entrants is of utmost importance to have any chance of bringing the ribbons home at the end of September. All the show sheep and cattle have been on a very healthy feed regime so they are certainly looking the part and with the extensive grooming that is yet to happen will present very well.
Other things on the farm, the pastures and hay crops that were planted over the holidays are growing nicely, slowly because of the cold weather, but should be rocketing away by the middle of this month and look spectacular.
Well over 1000 trees have been planted recently by students and families between the patch and the creek which is a massive effort and will soon create a beautiful habitat and vista from the school, thankyou to all who contributed.
