Agriculture Victoria is inviting producers to a free workshop. This event includes commercial agronomists who will advise producers on selecting suitable species, and management for winter grazing and spring fodder conservation. There will also be a session on livestock nutritional requirements and feed budgeting, presented by Agriculture Victoria.

Producers will have the opportunity to talk with company representatives and discuss fodder options that are directly applicable to their own farms. Producers will be given clear information around what options are available for either grazing or fodder conservation, how and when to establish, when to graze.
