Farmers to learn about environmental best practice
Federated Farmers is proudly promoting regional Field Days for the Ballance Farm Environment Supreme Award Winners.
Details of these upcoming Field Days are below.
“What Ballance Farm Environment Supreme Award Winners showcase, is how farmers are responsibly using the environment,”
says Bruce Wills Federated Farmers President.
“While they say you cannot teach an old dog new tricks, that saying does not hold with agriculture. Farmers devour
information and use field days to learn better ways of doing things.
“In March, I was among 200 farmers at the Smedley Station Field Day in Hawke’s Bay. This gives you an idea as to how
popular these Ballance Farm Environment Award Supreme Winner Field Days are.
“Because farming is about life-long learning, we know those attending will take ideas and concepts back to their farms,”
Mr Wills concluded.
