apologies if you have already received this information from Peter, the Healthy Farm Dam workshop is at Bogee and given lack of rain now is the time to check it all out.
The location is the NOOLA Road end of Dunnville Loop. (same street as the Bogee RFS shed and Telstra exchange).
Wendy Williams and I attended the Small farmers & Rural Lifestyle Block Owners Seminar at Lithgow last week and it was fabulous (food was good too).
Bob Newman, Detective Senior Constable from Chifley Rural Crime Unit NSW Police spoke about Rural Crime on the increase and that we all need to be vigilant. Apparently there was an incident in the Capertee Valley last week.... most drug addicts looking to sell equipment etc. but none the less very dangerous people.
Rural crime is growing so lookout, be aware and report anything suspicious. Watch out for your absentee neighbours.
If you have an incident we can put info on the BLOG (no names or locations but the fact there is thieves lurking), contact Bruce 63797767
On the agenda as well was Tracie McMahon from Blackwattle Business Consulting Pty Ltd who gave an excellent presentation on taxation in relation to your property.
discussion on feral animals, On Farm Biosecurity and requirements for running livestock, Weeds and your responsibilities and Bushfire mitigation.
Wendy and I came away with knowledge on matters that interested us, well done Peter Evans from LLL Central Tablelands.
it was also a good time to network.
To top it off the venue at the Notre Dame University campus (brand new) was excellent. well worth the trip and car pooling is the way to go.
