Franklin Martket, 9.00am - 1pm Franklin Palais, contact Janet on 6266 3983 Dairy couple share secret of success IDEAS: Grant and Melanie Rogers. TASMANIAN dairy farmers will pick up ideas on how to work simpler and smarter at the Dairying for Tomorrow field day at Ouse on November 10. At the farm of 2010 Dairy Business of the Year farmers Grant and Melanie Rogers farmers will learn about some of the ideas the couple has used. The Rogers moved to the Derwent Valley from New Zealand in 2003 in search of water and affordable land where they restored a rundown prop- erty, Pindari Farm, at Ouse. ''People attending the event will learn about ways to save time, money and labour on their farm,'' Mr Rogers said. Topics to be covered include irri- gation and management practices. ''We now have three milkings in two days, as part of our drive to be more efficient on the farm,'' Mr Rogers said. One innovation he has introduced is a simple flood wash, which cleans out the milking shed in a much quicker time than the method that is usually used in dairy properties. Not only will the Dairying for Tomorrow field day cover aspects of the milk shed, but what happens in the pastures. ''We have water meter loggers, and can measure the pasture moisture,'' he said. To attend the Dairying for Tomor- row field day respond by November 7 to 6432 2233 or email@example.com. Y Di v i u a d v w a id au a ia. .au T P Of A l M l l A l f , , , , , l , l .
