Diggers Rest Field Day a Success

The VSTWP hosted a Best Practice Management Serrated Tussock Field Day on Saturday May 5th in Diggers Rest, with 42 people attending throughout the day. 

VSTWP Community Engagement Officer Ivan Carter said "we were very happy with the strong numbers and I am sure that all those in attendance were impressed by the knowledge of the guest speakers and demonstrations". The day featured spraying demonstrations, grazing and pasture management experts and informed the community of the threat serrated tussock poses and how to best mitigate the threats. The Diggers Rest site provided for some useful discussion for the best way to remove the serrated tussock and establish a cometitive pasture. 

It is hoped the further Field Days can be hsoted across the State, based on the success of this one.
