Beef & Lamb Freshwater Workshop: Millers Flat - 13th Feb 2019

Beef & Lamb Freshwater Workshop: Millers Flat

13/02/2019 11am

Freshwater management is about a lot more than just nitrogen and phosphorous. This interactive workshop will help to introduce you to some simple tools to measure key indicators of freshwater quality, habitat for fish and ecosystems. 

This includes a practical demonstration of the SHMAK (Stream Health Monitoring Assessment Kit) equipment and how farmers can use it to help them assess their own water quality and the values of their freshwater ecosystems. Having tools to monitor your freshwater puts you in a good position to make informed management decisions on-farm and understand how they will impact the aquatic environment.

This is a great opportunity to get the children involved as well.  

Includes lunch.

Registration

Numbers are strictly limited so registration is essential.
