WEBINAR: Interpreting weather station data to assist farm-decision making
Feb 27 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Producers are increasingly accessing soil moisture and climate data recorded by on-farm weather stations. The Barossa Improved Grazing Group first established weather stations in local pasture paddocks in 2013 – in this webinar BIGG’s data will be used as an example on how it can be interpreted and used to assist farm decision-making.


Presented by Peter Toome, Managing Director TOIP Pty Ltd, the webinar will cover:

  • Types of data being recorded by on-farm weather stations
  • Making sense of the recorded data
  • How the data can be manipulated to provide soil moisture and weather indicators
  • How to use the data and indicators to assist farm decision making

Dairy SA Conference @ Chateau Tanunda
Mar 5 all-day

Registrations are now open for the DairySA Central Conference to be held on Thursday 5 March, 2020 at Chateau Tanunda, Barossa Valley.

The DairySA Central Conference will provide a platform for dairy farmers to think ‘outside the square’ and be open to fresh ways of addressing pertinent issues in the dairy industry.

In 2020, the DairySA Conference is embracing ‘Bold Ideas’ – it will explore new directions in chromosomal mating and dairy beef, plunge into social licence conversations on replacement calves, delve into ways of driving positive dairy culture, revisit proven ‘best practice’ in silage, and showcase success stories from dairies ‘doing it differently’.

Hear from Warren Davies, ‘The Unbreakable Farmer’ who will provide an authentic, inspiring and sometimes confronting presentation filled with take home strategies developed from his business and life journey around the key themes of resilience, persistence and determination.

Start the year right and head along to the DairySA Central Conference!
