With David Stewart from Small Farm Services Victoria
Pasture Renovation Field Day with David Stewart from Small Farm Services Victoria
Small property management has its own specific requirements. This field day offers all landowners the chance to discuss pasture management and get independent answers, especially those new to farming or anyone thinking their paddocks might need some attention.
David Stewart is the former manager of the Small Landholder Information Service at DPI and he understands what is required to manage small acreage successfully.
