The Organic Dairy and Pastoral Group is running a workshop at Greg and Rachel Hart’s property, Mangarara, this spring. Check out the You Tube mini movie at the bottom. The ODPG have more field days and workshops lined up this spring – check out their website for more info – http://www.organicpastoral.co.nz
Tools for On-Farm Assessment: Hawkes Bay
This workshop will run through the tools we currently have at our fingertips for on-farm assessment including:
- Graham Shepherd’s new abbreviated VSA;
- Holistic Grazing observation tools;
- Brix, EC and Sap PH metres;
- Plate meters;
- Infiltration measurements;
- and of course, the trusty spade (and whatever else we come up with).
In addition, we will look at recording methods to ensure that the information you generate from your observations can be viewed over time.
These will be interactive days where everyone will get a chance to get their hands dirty and tune up your observation skills.
More details to be announced
WORKSHOP DURATION: approx. 3 hours
Arrive at 9.30 a.m. for Morning Tea. The Workshop will begin at 10 a.m.
