LIC Monitor Farm Open Day
When it is such a wet day it is difficult to remember the sunshine we had at our Monitor Farm Open day with Livestock Improvement Corporation (LIC) International.
21st July was a successful day for our Walford campus! We had 27 farmers and staff on site for the LIC Monitor farm day who spent several hours out in the field with the cows and some cool refreshments at lunch time. It was a great day with lively discussions and a real opportunity to reflect on the year with other farmers - we received great feedback from some well established farmers from around the region and just over the border.
Very positive feedback and everyone seemed to come back with something useful as some farms were transitioning and looking to follow the same route we have just taken.
