Success Through Hard Times


Making farming work when you have to battle against the weather, fluctuating input and output prices can be daunting and seem almost impossible.  However, Charley Walker, Grassland Farmer of the Year 2019, has demonstrated that it is possible to succeed despite all of these challenges.

Grassland management is the secret!  He operates a rotational grazing system and is able to outwinter stock on deferred grass in the winter.

He will discuss his system and what he has found works well.  Topics will include organics, reseeding, building fertility into the solid and reducing the labour requirement.

Just imagine managing to have a life and reduce your costs!
