A note from the CEO

It is wonderful to see some rain at least in eastern Australia. So I would hope we are all doing what we can to re-hydrate parched landscapes making the best use possible of those techniques to “slow the flow”! The highlight of the month has been a very well patronised Maia Grazing field day, “Grazing in Extremes” near Ebor NSW where the emphasis was on information and best-practice sustainable grazing techniques and management promoting the creation and nurturing of productive healthy soils and pasture. There was an impressive list of speakers including Dr Christine Jones, Jim Gerrish and Bart Davidson to name a few.

Chairman Soils For Life welcomes over 350 people to Wilmot Cattle Co. for the Maia Grazing field day.

The field day featured world-class speakers on soil health, wise grazing practice and what natural capital is all about and why it is so topical now, together with a very touching account of Alex and Nic Anderson’s journey down the path to adoption of regenerative practice in harsh climatic and seasonal extremes.

Well over 350 people listen to Bart Davidson’s address on the importance of farm planning.
CEO Rod Chisholm fields enquiries from farmers looking to get tips on making a start with regenerative practices.
Attendees gaining insight into soil health and and wiser grazing practices.

We took dozens of enquiries on the day and gave away numerous copies of case studies and pamphlets.

If you would like to find out more, check-out our website and social media feeds and perhaps consider being the subject of a case study if you have a good regenerative farming practice story to tell.  On another note, I am leaving soon for family reasons and returning to Brisbane. It has been a great year and I encourage everyone to learn as much as you can about regenerative farming practice and implement against a well-considered plan!
