Effluent Systems Open Days - Gordonton

Effluent is a valuable resource to capture and use on farm. These events will showcase various effluent system designs and provide a chance to hear direct feedback from the host farmers.

Come along for the day where we will visit 3-4 farms or, just attend a farm and system of interest. The host farmers will share information about what it cost, how the system works, the pro’s and con’s and anything they would do differently if they were to do it again.
