Why Attend?

5 years into the regrassing plan, the benefits and the learnings on this highly profitable system 5 farm.

Jess and Nick are managing partners in the family business. 400 crossbred cows are managed under excellent system 5 management and consistently achieve 540 MS per cow and 2100 MS per ha. Feed conversion efficiency is excellent, and the focus is on harvesting as much pasture as possible. The farm has a clear plan for pasture improvement with input from Kristin at Farmsource and industry experts.

Discussion topics will include:

  • Broad outline of the farm system aims and non negotiables
  • The importance of pasture under system 5 management
  • The ongoing plan to control weeds and increase pasture growth and persistence
  • Any other seasonally relevant topics 

Lunch kindly provided by Farmsource.

Protect our industry - please arrive with clean boots to prevent the spread of disease, pest or weed.
