Last Friday field experts Trent Oats, Matthew FitzGerald and Ricky Ferris visited our Agriculture students to assist in developing their skills.
Our students learnt how to shear, draft and judge sheep. They worked with Trent Oats, a past student who now has his own sheep stud and Matthew FitzGerald. Matthew is the previous Farm Manager at the College, who is now managing a large commercial farm.
The horticulture team did a tour of the property to search for native plants and make a plan to propagate them down on the farm. They also worked on the patch, by planting basil and lettuce.
Ricky Ferris taught the students the basics of showing beef cattle. This included learning how to correctly put on a halter, as well as how to wash, brush and dry the cattle. Ricky finished up with allowing the students to take part in leading practice.
As you can see from the images below, all our students involved had a great time and will no doubt put all their new skills to good use.
