Well done to Chris Jordan for completing two years of On Campus and Field Research with Melbourne University for a Graduate Diploma in Agriculture. Click on “Melbourne University” for more details and photos.
After the past three years of land damage from flooding, Farmer Jordan (Simmental Whisperer) thought he would go back to College to update his knowledge on current Agricultural trends. The Simmental Stud farm had lost nearly 100% of pasture and the cattle had to be hand fed. A lifetime of farming is a fabulous foundation to stand one in “life on the land”, but current technologies change and it was for that reason Chris went back to study. Armed with new information and ideas the total farm has been restructured and repaired. It is still an ongoing job, but the future of the pasture looks grand.
