The past few weeks have been a little more sedate in the agricultural sector with most students busy with exams. All of the shows and events have wound up for the year which gives us a chance to examine how this years scholarships programs where conducted, what went well and what not so. This will enable us to build on our strengths for an even better program next year.
In trying to maximize the potential for success next year, applications opened for the scholarship positions for 2020. These have been keenly taken up by next years potential teams. I am expecting interviews will begin in the next couple of weeks and our teams, except for horticulture, will be selected before the end of the school year.
Hay making is in full swing with the first of our crops being cut on Sunday, Pea and Oat mix and all indications are that it will a high quality product. The rest of our pasture and barley hay will be cut during the following week.
I am expecting with the beautiful weather forecast, that we should begin baling it all in around ten days. Therefore, there will be quite a bit of quality hay for sale if anyone is interested over the coming months. Unfortunately due to the fires and drought in NSW there is already a fair demand for hay coming from these regions so get in early if you are keen.
