Old Courthouse, 34 Towong St, Tallangatta. 9.30am to 12.30pm.
In 2015, the Weekly Times called Colin Seis a 'visionary' and
suggested he is one of the top 6 most influential farmers in the world.
Colin Seis is a 4th generation farmer in the Gulgong district of NSW.
In 1979, the 2000 acre familly farm was destroyed by bushfire. With the loss of the house, the farm infrastructure and 3/4 of the stock, Colin had to develop new low input farming practices that were a major shift from his father’s industrial farming methods.
Colin will be sharing his story of resilience and adaptation - the development of his innovative
regenerative farming method, known as ‘multi species pasture cropping’, and the changes he has witnessed on his property. These include improved soil health, increased water infiltration,
improved pasture quality, reduced insect attack, enhanced ecological function and increased profitability.
Colin has also diversified his income streams, including grazing merino sheep and cattle, a merino stud enterprise, harvesting of native grass seed, and one of the largest kelpie studs in the world.
“We’ve got agriculture wrong. We should be looking at ways to farm that feed
people and generate a profit, but also regenerate the land.” - Colin Seis
