Attendees to this year’s Dowerin Machinery Field Days are encouraged to visit the Department of Agriculture and Food’s (DAFWA) shed to find out the latest information and tools available for farm businesses.

DAFWA Regional Director Pamela I’Anson invited visitors to stop by the shed to network and have a look at farm business tools and information available.

“Farmers can find out more about the successful farm planning workshops, how these can be of value to their business and to register for future workshops,” Ms I’Anson said.

“Livestock producers will be particularly interested in the display of hazardous farm dump materials and how they can protect their livestock.”

There will also be the opportunity to sign up for the AgTactics and AgMemo publications, which provide relevant and timely information on cropping and livestock.

“Small landholders will not be overlooked, with the Fresh Food Link initiative connecting small producers with new markets, processors and value adders,” Ms I’Anson said.

“There will be a range of other displays including the Yield Prophet® sites, invasive weeds and weather station information.”

Keep an eye out for the DAFWA shed along Uberin Street at the Dowerin Machinery Field Days on Wednesday 28 August and Thursday 29 August.
