Action-packed Spring Field Day

ASHEEP held an action-packed Spring Field Day with a great turn out on 26th September 2019. The course of the day took the bus (hosted and sponsored by Dr Tim Watts, WA Livestock Research Council) through some great sites, starting with Fleming Grove where Theo Oorschot, Esperance Rural Supplies and Chris Poole, Murdoch University took us through a range of trials.


The third property visited was at Old Smokey Road for the Landmark Pasture Variety

Trial, before heading on to view a range of pastures off Muntz Road where Dr Angelo Loi, DPIRD addressed the group. The bus then rolled on to Willyama Station where the group took in a number of sites including grazing canola, serradella and heard about

their experience fattening lambs on vetch.


The day wrapped up nicely at the Condingup Hall where congratulations went to Wayne Lewis for being crowned the 2019 Alosca “Nod King”.
