As part of the Future Ready Dairy Systems project a field day on biological farming will be held at Andrew and Kate Carter’s. Andrew and Kate have been using an integrated approach focused on soil biology for the past three years. Come for lunch to hear what they have learnt along the way. Farm adviser, Karl Stokes, will also be attending and he will demonstrate Visual Soil Assessment (Landcare Research NZ). Changes in the production system will be discussed in terms of costs/benefits and greenhouse gas emissions.
