Summer Fodder Walk an opportunity for learning

RAGT’s Richard Prusa agricultural students from Marcus Oldham Agricultural College

On the 16th of February, Southern Farming Systems held their annual Summer Fodder Walk at Rokewood Pasture & Forage Trial Site. The day included trials & demos focusing on Forage Brassicas with demonstration strips of Sorghum and Millet sown on 1st December.

With the guidance of our very own Richard Prusa, we were lucky enough to get a class of 1st year Agricultural students from Marcus Oldham Agricultural College down to the trials to get an opportunity at some hands on learning. While at the site they had a chance to inspect and discuss the uses of forage brassicas, forage sorghum & millet as well as learn about summer grazing options for the Western Districts.
