The past fortnight has been a very exciting time for the Ag department - and for myself, having only just begun managing the school farm. I see a lot of potential for the school and the farm, developing its Ag program and the farm into a world-class facility.
Our scholarship students involved with both the sheep and cattle showing have been working hard to get their animals to a level of control where they can be lead around the yard, quite a tough job when they, the sheep and cattle, can be very stubborn at times. There is also a lot of grooming and preparation that needs to be done. I am sure they will be well prepared for their performances at the upcoming Bendigo and Royal Melbourne Shows.
Our paddocks are also being prepared for hay production later in the year, with fertilizer and weed spraying to give them the greatest chance of a high-yielding crop. Given the devastating drought gripping the majority of the east coast of Australia, hay has become a very valuable commodity and we are looking to take full advantage of the opportunity.
I'm looking forward to sharing more updates with you throughout the rest of the year as our students compete in the various shows.
