Field day highlights issues for beef producers

NORTH Coast Local Land Services is offering beef producers in the Clarence Valley the opportunity to learn about a range of issues that can impact on herd productivity in the first Beef Producer Field Days for the year.

The Field Days are being held as part of North Coast Local Land Services commitment to providing integrated agricultural advice to the region.

Local topics relevant to each local region have been included in the three events. The North Coast Local Land Services team of District Veterinarians will present on animal health related issues, including information about cattle tick fever and a range of presenters will provide advice on pasture management, weed control and overall herd productivity and profitability.

Beef production is the North Coast's biggest single agricultural earner, with a gross value of $234 million to the region.

The Beef Field Days are free events with lunch provided so please RSVP for catering purposes. More information is available on the North Coast Local Land Services website http://www.northcoast.lls.nsw.gov.au.

To register for the Grafton event being held on Wednesday February 25, phone Julie Dart at North Coast Local Land Services on 6659 9406 or you can email your registration details to julie.dart@lls.nsw.gov.au.
