About the day
Partnering with Agricom, this Farming for Profit field day is going to look at how you can integrate regenerative agriculture practices into your existing farming system perhaps without having to make drastic changes to your current farming practices.
Agricom have committed an area of their Marshdale farm to a Diverse Pastures Project researching plant species, mixes, stock performance, soil health, grazing philosophies and botanical measurements all within the existing farm system.
We will look further into why they have committed to this, what they are looking at and the results they are hoping to achieve all while showing how you might be able to introduce some of these practices into your own farm system.
Please email Rachel.Jukes@www.funkst.com if you are having any problems registering.
New improvements to how B+LNZ manages events
We now have a new event website that offers additional features, and we’ve made further improvements since it was launched. Find out more about the new events website here.
COVID-19 event protocols
There will be some changes to how events are run so that we adhere to the government’s COVID-19 requirements: COVID-19.govt.nz. In particular, B+LNZ needs to manage risks, and have the ability to contact trace attendees if anything were to happen.
- It is imperative that every individual pre-registers for any B+LNZ events to avoid the risk of being turned away upon arrival.
- If you have cold or flu symptoms, please stay at home.
The outbreak of Mycoplasma bovis has highlighted the importance of on-farm biosecurity. When attending a B+LNZ field day please ensure you have clean footwear and vehicles are not carrying fresh muck or vegetation. This will help reduce the risk of spreading weeds, pests and diseases onto our host farms and across our country. To stay clean, we need to be clean.
