ELMORE FIELD DAYS 2017

Welcome President’s Report Well it’s that time again! Spring has sprung and it’s time to go to the best part of October (in my opinion!) the Elmore Field Days. Of course, I am a tad biased but all jokes aside our committee is very proud of the standing our event has within the agricultural fraternity. Like all the different agricultural sectors we service, we too feel the wrath of Mother Nature from time to time. In 2015 we were scorched and dusty and in a cruel twist the next Field Days (2016) we copped the wettest September on record and massive rains the weekend before our event. It tested the resolve of all our exhibitors, committee and patrons but we got through it, albeit flat, and now we are back ready to put our best foot forward to showcase the tremendous agricultural industry that we are all part of. At the time of writing, the season has turned the corner locally and we are looking at a promising year ahead. This has reflected in our exhibitors returning in their

droves. The speed at which all the applications for sites this year came in was truly amazing. We have a great array of new models and machines lined up for this year along with our regular popular features such as our in-paddock demonstrations, sheep demonstrations, livestock exhibits, ag art and general interest areas as well as the over 700 static sites. Our committee is very conscious that our Field Days falls in the school holidays this year and that the mums and dads attending this year will have a few “apprentice” farmers in tow. While the next generation of future farmers love to look at all the great gear and services that mum and dad want, they also love to see some good old fashion kids’

entertainment. We have worked with local companies and exhibitors to source some great entertainment such as face painting, jumping castle and live entrainment for all. Of course, when us adults need time out we have the usual great array of food and drinks in the catering areas to recharge our batteries. The 16 local organisations that run the catering for us have worked incredibly hard this year to get the best range and quality of yummy food and drinks at the Field Days. Who knows, you may even be at the catering site that our guest entertainer Jemma Beech will be playing at, as she will be in attendance the three days. Finally, welcome to you all, have a great time and may your visit to our area and Field Days be enjoying and enlightening. Happy farming.

BETTER WATER BETTER MILK

dairy DID YOU KNOW THAT COWS WILL DRINK LESS WATER IF IT SMELLS OR TASTES BAD? If the water is unpalatable cows will drink less water, which can mean lower milk production. One of the most common causes of unpalatable drinking water for cows is the presence of bacteria. “Good water quality is essential for successful livestock production” – ANZEEC (2000) water quality guidelines Poor water quality has also been associated with increased risks to animal health. “Abundant, high quality drinking water is the most important essential nutrient for dairy cows” – David K. Beede PhD, Michigan State University, March 2009 “Water quality is an important issue in the production and health of dairy cattle” – Waldner & Looper, Oklahoma State University, 2002 Low quality water can be expensive! Scale build up can have a negative impact on the efficiency of your dairy shed and milking equipment. High calcium and iron content in the water can also block up pipes and nozzles, shorten the life of your equipment and increase your maintenance costs.

TAKING YOU PLACES POWERING TOMORROW

A taste of yesteryear The Vintage Tractor Parade is one of the most popular events on the Elmore Field Days calendar. People of all ages enjoy checking out the old style machines that are still in working order. The Lockington and District Living Heritage Complex will have at least eight tractors on display at the three-day event. President Joe Chappel said one of the oldest was a HV McKay 5ft Harvester built in Sunshine in 1910. “It was pulled by four to six horses,” Mr Chappel said. “10 acres could be harvested in a good day.” There will three American built tractors, a 1924 John Deere D 15–27 spoker 15 drawbar HP with two speed transmission, a 1951 John Deere D 40hp with three speed transmission and a 1935 McCormick Deering W30. A circa 1945 Fordson E27N 27hp built in the United Kingdom and a

Family-friendly agriculture event There will be fun for the whole family at the 54th annual Elmore Field Days, which falls in the school holiday period for the first time in years. The annual three-day event begins on October 3, bringing together the best of agriculture in an inspiring, informative and demonstrationpacked event. More than 700 exhibitors will display their products and expertise at the Elmore Events Centre this year; including tools and hardware, pools, machinery plants, steel yards, cattle crushes and more. There will be plenty for the littlies too with jumping castles, face painting and entertainment by Quirky Tales performer Narelle Stone—ensuring children of all ages enjoy the day. Public relations officer John Giffin said with hundreds of exhibitors and the general interest pavilions, attendees would be spoilt for choice. “It’s basically a one-stop shop for all your farming needs. If we haven’t got an exhibitor there that has what you’re after, they’ll certainly know what direction to head you in,” he said. “It is really an event for the whole

family, there’s plenty of general interest and recreation exhibitors covering everything from fishing and camping.” A wide range of machinery will be on show at the event, and in-paddock demonstrations give onlookers a chance to see the machines in action. “The big machinery is the key attraction for the bigger kids; you don’t have to be a little kid to enjoy hopping into the big machinery,” Mr Giffin said. The famed Ag Arts Wear competition will also return for another year, with crowds treated to a masterclass on turning everyday farm materials into intricate and incredible fashion with parades showing off the wonderful creations twice a day. Elmore Field Days will be held from October 3 to 5, from 8.30am to 5.30pm, at the Elmore Events Centre at 48 Rosaia Rd, Elmore. Tickets are available at the gate priced at $20 for adults, $10 for children 12 years and over, with

children under 12 admitted free. For more information visit www.elmorefielddays.com.au or

Trial: Ewes for the Future Come and see how electronic ID technology ca n be used to captur e individual fleec e information in the shearing shed

Key co-operating sponsors:

New trial 2015–2020

Ewes for the future —fertility, lambs and wool The new trial at the Elmore Field Days started in January 2015. The design is similar to the previous trial, but the breed groups are different. In this second trial three crossbred ewe types will be compared with

three Merino types. This trial emphasis is on ‘fertility’. The six breed types were each randomly selected from 3 properties, 14 ewe lambs per property, for a total of 252 ewe lambs.

The ewe lambs were joined to White Suffolk rams in late February 2015. The results on lambing percentage, lamb growth, wool and easy care characters will all be released as they progressively become available.

BREED TYPE

BACKGROUND

BORDER LEICESTER X MERINO CROSS

The most common prime lamb mother in the Elmore and northern districts.

MULTIMEAT X MERINO CROSS

Multimeats are a composite breed based on White Suffolk and Border Leicester genetics. They supply rams that are DNA tested to carry 2 copies of the Booroola fertility gene. These rams breed first-cross ewes from Merinos. The first-cross lambs carry one copy of the gene. Multimeat breeders claim these ewes consistently rear 30% more lambs than normal crossbreds.

CASHMORE-OAKLEA PERFORMANCE MATERNALS (COMPOSITES)

Cashmore-Oaklea Performance Maternals (Composites) have bred sheep from the following breeds: Coopworth, East Friesian, Finn, Border Leicester, Prime SAMM, Texel, Poll Dorset, White Suffolk, Merino, Corriedale, NZ Romney and Perendale. They have achieved a reputation for good lambing percentages, assisted by the hybrid vigour between the various breeds.

MERINO LODDON VALLEY

The second most common prime lamb mother in the Elmore and northern districts.

LEAHCIM MERINOS

Leahcim is a South Australian Merino stud that has a long history of selecting a meat type merino with low wrinkle, bare points, no need for mulesing but with high quality wool. The stud sells 700 rams annually and many studs and commercial flocks in Victoria are introducing Leahcim genetics.

CENTRE PLUS MERINO

Centre Plus is a group breeding scheme and registered Merino stud in Central West NSW that aims to produce dual-purpose sheep. It has good figures for lambing percentage ASBVs on the Sheep Genetics Australia website.

Winner of the 2014 Ag Art Wear competition.

The worlds of fashion and farming collide

Avant garde fashion with a farming twist will again hit the runway at Elmore Field Days. Eye-catching outfits, designed and made from everyday materials, are set to create a stir in the ever popular Ag Art Wear competition. Lorraine Trewick, brainchild behind the competition and Elmore Field Days’ general interest chairperson, said the idea was to create a wearable outfit made from materials found on a farm. “It’s amazing what they come up with every year,” Mrs Trewick said. “It just blows you away.” Mrs Trewick said these unique garments are paraded down the catwalk and they never ceased to impress the audience. “The top designers are always looking for something innovative,” she said. “They use animal bones, a lot of different bail twines, tractor tyre tubes, parts of machinery like spark plugs, wire, dust masks and frost cloth. 16

ELMORE FIELD DAYS 2017

“There was one competitor, one year she lacquered sheep manure and it just looked like beads.” Mrs Trewick said the competition was always hotly contested. “We have some very good designers and the standard keeps going up,” she said. “It has to be original, imaginative and easy to put on.

Winners of the 2016 Ag Art Wear competition.

“If they have accessories, like shoes, jewellery and hats, they must also be made.” The creations are judged by a panel of three with points deducted for any commercially used materials. There are four sections: Avant Garde, Designer, 18 Years and Under and Hats—with the top six designs in each category qualifying as finalists. Parades will run twice a day, at 11am and 2pm in the auditorium, and the finalists will be announced on the Thursday at 2pm.

Fashions worn in the 2016 Ag Art Wear competition.

Ms Beech has been playing at gigs since she was 16 years old, but it will be the first time she has appeared at the annual field days and the NSW resident said she was excited about the opportunity. “I’m looking forward to seeing what it’s all about … and driving seven hours down the highway where there is fresh air and a country lifestyle,” she said.

Academy as a senior. She has been mentored by Australian artists Amber Lawrence, Lyn Bowtell and Karl Broadie. Since touring with Hamilton duo the Sunny Cowgirls in 2016, Ms Beech has been recording her debut EP, which will be released at the Tamworth Country Music Festival in January 2018.

“I love performing my original music and my favourite country covers as well as connecting with the crowds and the community.” Ms Beech graduated from the Country Music Association of Australia (CMAA) Junior Academy in 2010, before returning in 2015 and graduating from the CMAA

Country music artist Jemma Beech will perform at Elmore Field Days for the first time this year.

Three years ago the Shepparton branch of William Adams Ag was launched at the event and the business has not looked back. Branch manager Christian Barnett said the business had grown significantly since its Elmore debut.

DIY=DIE when it comes to electrical work Two Victorian farmers have died after being electrocuted doing their own electrical maintenance work. In late 2015, a 75-year-old man was electrocuted while trying to fix a submersible pump on a property at Moorabool near Geelong. In January 2016 a 21-year-old farmer from Yarroweyah in northern Victoria was electrocuted while attending to a pump in a drainage pit. These tragic, preventable deaths highlight the problem of farmers and rural workers performing electrical work they are not qualified to do. Doing your own electrical work is not only illegal—it can also be fatal. Electrical work must always be done by a licensed electrician. Energy Safe Victoria has launched a new campaign called DIY=DIE to urge farmers and rural workers to never perform their own electrical work. The message is simple: don’t die trying to be an electrician.

Energy Safe Victoria is aware that financial pressures can mean many farmers work long hours or potentially cut corners with maintenance. We know that farmers are adept at a range of things but when it comes to electrical work it is just not worth the risk.

Farmers are being urged to call in a licensed electrician, no matter how remote the property or how simple the job appears to be.

Always call in a licensed electrician, no matter how remote the property or how simple the job appears to be. To minimise risk, farmers should carefully manage electrical installations and equipment and keep it in good working order.

ESV’s top tips for farmers:

Do not become another DIY statistic.

• Turn off water pumps before entering the water and touching or checking the equipment

Make safety the number one priority on your farm and do not take shortcuts that could cost you your life. Energy Safe Victoria will be at this year’s Elmore Field Days at Site AP125A.

• Never ignore minor shocks and tingles—these can be signs of a bigger electrical problem

• Do not try to fix submersible pumps yourself—electricity and water is a deadly combination • Do not use oversized fuse wiring • Never use broken power tools or faulty extension cords • Always call in a licensed electrician, no matter how small the job.

WiSA’s automated irrigation systems make life easier For 21 years WiSA Irrigation Solutions has been making a difference for irrigators around the World with the WiSA irrigation system.

WiSA Irrigation Solutions will be at the 2017 Elmore Field Days.

The automated control system has helped to improve the operation and efficiency of all types of irrigation, including sprinkler, sub-surface, pipe and riser, border-check, pivot, lateral drip, micro-sprinkler systems and flood. WiSA’s automated irrigation system means irrigators have greater control and flexibility over their irrigation management. Real-time data is collected through soil moisture probes and other sensors and sent from WiSA field units back to a computer. Using the WiSA AquaLink software the information is collected then used to make essential decisions on how, when and how much to irrigate. Plus it all can be remotely controlled from any smartphone or tablet. In the past 21 years, the WiSA team has installed the systems into golf courses, street-scapes and rooftop gardens, as well as viticulture,

vegetable, orchard and broadacre operations. Recently WiSA was shortlisted to supply the central control irrigation system for a new smart city in the Middle East, and has been working with some of the largest agricultural companies in the United States, the Middle East and Europe to automate

farm irrigation. With increasing demand on irrigators to become more cost- and timeefficient, WiSA’s automation systems have continued to provide solutions to improve irrigation operation and efficiency. WiSA’s systems are modular and built to the individual requirements

of clients, minimising costs of installation, and future-proofing projects with the ability to add to the system at minimal cost. For more information visit WiSA Irrigation Solutions at Elmore Field Days on Site 1009, phone 1300887380 or email sales@irrigatewisa.com.au

What is rice bran? Rice bran is the outer layer of the grain removed by polishing brown rice to become white rice. It is a highly nutritious product, being a rich source of energy, protein, vitamins, minerals and fibre. By comparison, rice hulls—the outer covering of the grain removed during the de-hulling process—contain a high level of fibre and have limited feed value.

Research has proven that feeding additional energy in the form of fat increases the concentration of cholesterol, fat and progesterone in the blood. Rice bran also contains up to 15 per cent protein. The amino acid profile of rice bran is well-balanced and compares favourably with other cereal bran.

Rice bran contains up to 26 per cent oil, which is a good source of highly digestible energy.

Besides offering quality energy and protein, rice bran is an excellent source of vitamins B and E, macro and trace minerals, fatty acids and antioxidants required for optimum health.

Feeding of an energy-rich ration

CopRice is located at Site 1047.

Nutritional composition

Rice bran is the outer layer of the grain removed by polishing brown rice to become white rice.

reduces the negative energy status of early lactation cows.

Feature

Benefits

Nutritional quality of rice bran

Highly digestible

Improved feed efficiency, which equates to better feed conversion, increased milk production, improved fertility and cow health.

CopRice strategically utilises rice bran, a highly nutritious by-product of rice processing, in its livestock rations.

Source of sustained energy

Limited risk of acidosis, allowing high feeding rates when necessary (e.g. early lactation).

High energy content

Increases the cow’s energy intake and reduces the impact of negative energy balance in early lactation.

Rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants (e.g. gamma oryzanol)

Essential fatty acids and antioxidants have an important role in improving cow health and fertility.

Moderate levels of protein

The protein in rice bran contains a good balance of essential amino acids. The quality of protein in rice bran is generally better than that of cereal grains.

Excellent source of Vitamins E, B1 and B3

Vitamin E helps build the immune system especially prior to calving. Vitamin B1 is important for energy metabolism. Niacin reduces the incidence of metabolic diseases.

Rich source of trace minerals (e.g. manganese and zinc)

Manganese is essential for reproduction, building the immune system, bone development and strength. Zinc promotes hoof and udder health.

About CopRice CopRice is a division of SunRice, a farmer-owned co-operative that grows and markets all of the rice produced in Australia. SunRice is one of the largest rice food companies in the world and one of Australia’s leading branded food exporters.

As such, CopRice has exclusive access to all of the by-products produced by SunRice’s rice milling activities. CopRice strategically utilises rice bran, along with other ingredients, including cereals, oilseeds and pulses, to create balanced, palatable and highly digestible pelletised rations for livestock.

ELMORE FIELD DAYS 2017


A long history of fertiliser Eastern Spreaders Pty Ltd is celebrating its 28th year of distributing Marshall Multispread fertiliser spreaders through the eastern states of Australia. The Marshall Multispread was developed when the proprietor, Albert Freeman managed a gypsum mining company in 1981. That company had a fleet of imported spreaders which handled the ‘puggy’ gypsum quite well but were too small for Australian broadacre farming. During the spring and summer of 1981-82 the prototype Multispread was developed in consultation with Marshall and Roesner Pty Ltd from Western Australia and modified. It spread approximately 15000 tonnes of gypsum in that first season. The Marshall Multispread went into full-scale production in 1982 and soon accounted for about 80 per cent of the belt-type spreader market. It was originally designed to spread heavy rates of gypsum, lime and organic material, but had the ability to handle fertiliser and seed at very light rates such as canola and lucerne seed as low as 4kg/ha.

In November 1989 Albert and Joan Freeman began Eastern Spreaders which continues to market and service the Marshall throughout Eastern Australia. Demand for larger units has seen the range increased to include models up to 16 tonne (12.5 cubic metres) and has been developed to spread to up to 36 metres in urea and fertiliser.

internet service as it transmits its own Bluetooth signal between the spreader controller and the iPad. Eastern Spreaders Pty Ltd also began importing N.D.E. Vertical Cutter/Mixer/Feeders in 2000 and is the Australian distributor for these very efficient and well received machines, both in dairy and feedlot situations.

A recent addition to Eastern Spreaders’ range of equipment is the Keltec Bale Slice which easily slices bales upwards from the bottom when loading into balefeeders or mixers and firmly holds and removes the wrap to avoid contamination of the feed. Eastern Spreaders will be located at Site 668 at The Elmore Field Days.

With the advent of GPS technology and precision farming a need arose for seeding and fertilising equipment to be compatible with Variable Rate Technology (VRT). During the past two years Matt Roesner has been developing the Marshall Door Control (MDC) unit which can be fitted to existing Marshall spreaders. The MDC was released at Mallee Field Days in 2016 and has now been successfully used by clients from all around the country. The MDC can be retrofitted to Marshall spreaders and is controlled by an iPad which does not require

An 810T (10tonne) Marshall Spreader fitted with the new Marshall Door Control system.

ELMORE FIELD DAYS 2017


In-Paddock Demonstrations

Machinery on show The in-paddock demonstrations at Elmore Field Days will allow exhibitors to show off their machinery in action. Bringing together everything from tillage and haymaking equipment to spraying and sowing machinery, the day will provide visitors with insight into a variety of agricultural equipment.

The demonstrations will run throughout the three-day event, and senior vice-president and demonstration committee chairman Andrew Holmberg said they were a great way to show off the machinery.

“It gives the exhibitors the opportunity to display their wares in real-life situations where it is actually working out in the field, more so than a static display,” he said. The overall event attracts a variety of patrons including prospective buyers, families with young children and people interested in learning more about the world of agriculture.

“People who live in towns aren’t so closely related to farming and they really just don’t see the modern equipment at work. They get to come and have a look and it really is an eye-opener, the machines are incredible,” Mr Holmberg said. The demonstrations will start each day from 11am on the east side of Elmore Field Days site.

ELMORE FIELD DAYS 2017

Daily In-Paddock Demonstration Program from 11am (Enter via Gate 7) Each year, Elmore Field Days provides the opportunity for Exhibitors to demonstrate their machines under field conditions. The demo area is situated on the east side of the site (see centre page map) where Exhibitors will demonstrate each day.

Paul and Fiona Crichton support McGrath Foundation and Australian Prostate Cancer Research with the help of Tapex Agri.

Tapex Agri and Children’s Cancer Foundation unite In 2017 Tapex Agri completes the loop of supporting the rural family by teaming up with the Children’s Cancer Foundation. This partnership will raise muchneeded funds to enable children with cancer to access the world’s best treatment and support, and to build awareness of childhood cancer throughout Australia.

Cancer Research. “To date, through your support we have raised more than $65000 in two harvest seasons, directly helping families in rural communities,” Mr Amos said.

The Children’s Cancer Foundation supports families through treatment, partners with hospitals to deliver clinical excellence, and builds worldclass paediatric cancer clinical research.

“By supporting our distinctive coloured bale wrap, net, and silage covers, you will be part of our community in raising funds and awareness within rural Australia.

General manger Jason Amos said Tapex Agri was proud to continue its work with the McGrath Foundation and Australian Prostate

“Our contribution does much more than raising funds, the eye-catching colours raise awareness in rural communities and bring much-

needed publicity to these cancers, which can affect our families and colleagues alike.” Tapex Agri is also proud to present new and improved updates on Australia’s favourite baling twines—Hercules HD+ and TROJAN Plus. Used in all makes of high density balers, the weight of Hercules HD+ twine allows it to run smoothly through bill hooks and knotters, resulting in fewer missed ties, and therefore reducing down-time for operators. It is also a soft twine when compared to others in the market, resulting in minimal wear to the knotters’ components. Trojan PLUS large square baling

twine is recognised in Australia as the reliable medium-density twine of choice for contractors who are looking to maximise their time on the windrow, which is afforded by the 2800m pack length. This new twine has been proven in Australian conditions. Trojan PLUS is 27 per cent longer than Trojan twine but still with the same knot and tensile strengths. With 27 per cent more bales per spool, this results in 27 per cent fewer spool changes and far greater efficiency when baling. Come and talk to Tapex Agri in the Ag Pavilion, Site 93, about its full range of Tapex Agri crop packaging products.

DeLaval to launch new milking system DeLaval has announced it will reveal a new rotary milking system designed specifically for grassland farming, at Elmore Field Days. “We’ve taken everything we know globally and distilled that into a system for farmers on a pasturebased production model,” DeLaval’s Oceania sales director Justin Thompson said. “We’re incredibly excited to reveal a system that meets the local needs of farmers who are milking two or three hours twice a day over a seasonal curve. “These are not farms with 20000 cows milking around the clock like our customers in China and Europe. “What we’ve done is put the farmer in the middle of the picture. “Throughout this whole process, we have kept asking ourselves, what sort of system will measurably improve their animal welfare, farm

profitability, worker efficiency and milk quality?” This new system has been kept under wraps on a test farm, where a 500-cow herd was the first to put the system through its paces over the 2016–2017 season. “For us, cow comfort comes first and I’ve never seen animals so calm in a cowshed,” farm owner Jack Scheres said. “We’d never worked with DeLaval before. “We had always thought they imported their technology from Europe, so we’ve been pleasantly surprised to see this system developed in Oceania for our dairy conditions.”

DeLaval will launch a new milking system at Elmore Field Days. “It identifies the cow as she comes in, it tells me milk production or milk loss, and it will automatically draft any cow based on parameters I set,” sharemilker Chap Zweirs said. “Any cowshed will do the basic job, so the inbuilt technology was the deciding factor for us to go ahead

with DeLaval.” This reveal is the first phase in a rotary development program planned by DeLaval for the next two years. For more information, go to Site 991 at Elmore Field Days.

Cover crop, broadacre and pasture seed information for growers At site 365 Elmore Field Days visitors will find Australian Gain and Forage Seeds (AGF Seeds). As an independent Australian owned seed business with production, processing, treating and marketing capabilities it is no surprise that the owners David Toose and Tim Brown care about the long-term viability of their end user customers; famers. The philosophy of marketing only varieties with sound technical merit has filtered through the range of broadacre and pasture seeds the company sells. It has also led to the company investing in the development of cover crop species suited to Australia. Tillage Radish has now been available from AGF seeds for a few seasons and has rapidly been adopted in a broad range of farming industries in every state.

While Tillage Radish is the cover crop mainstay, its success on farm has led to the development of other cover crop specific species and standard blends being developed.

Australian Gain and Forage Seeds grows and processes QA seed.

At 11am on each day of the field days, AGF Seeds will present on how cover crops are being used, what is available and how to get started. All are welcome to join in.

Take the opportunity to find out more about broadacre cover cropping at the Elmore Field Days.

At the AGF Seeds Elmore Field Days site visitors will also be able to discuss what they want out of the seed varieties they will be using next and the team will happily help work though the best varieties for their specific situation. Be sure to drop in to site 365 for information on the current or next wheat, barley, hay crop, forage crop, pasture or cover crop variety.

Dig smart Dial Before You Dig (DBYD) is a not-for-profit memberbased organisation that puts excavators planning to dig in contact with the owners of underground infrastructure. It is free for an excavator (digger) to lodge an inquiry. You can lodge an inquiry through the mobile-compatible website, www.1100.com.au or phone 1100 during business hours. You tell DBYD where you plan to dig and all the affected underground infrastructure owners will send their plans back to you by email. It is important to follow the instructions from all the asset owners to locate each asset.

Dial Before You Dig’s Victoria/Tasmania strategic relations manager Joe Fiala and Victoria/Tasmania marketing co-ordinator Simon Surrao at the Victorian Farmers Federation Heart of Victoria Dinner.

Recently the organisation has seen more and more farms becoming members of DBYD which means their assets are protected through the DBYD service. New members include windfarms because the electricity generated

by the turbines is carried by underground cables to the substation. If these cables are damaged by excavation works it could be a very costly fix for all parties involved. For more information on becoming a member, fill out an expression of interest form at www.1100.com.au/ members/membership-expressionof-interest/ or email Simon Surrao at ssurrao@1100.com.au DBYD also offers free awareness sessions for work crews, which include information on your duty of care, help to read plans and promotional stock. For more information on awareness sessions email Angela Gilmore at agilmore@1100.com.au

Committed to the community

Colbinabbin’s Shane Ryan was one of many volunteers lending a hand at last year’s Elmore Field Days.

Elmore Field Days is determined to see the town of Elmore flourish. This commitment sees a portion of profits put straight back into the community through local organisations and grants. Elmore Field Days Committee president Derek Shotton said the event was important for the tightknit, small community. “Most of us are third, fourth or fifth generation community members and we want to make sure our town stays relevant and grows,” Mr Shotton said. “By doing our little bit I think we are a lot better off than other little towns.” Mr Shotton said there were multiple ways for community groups to raise all-important funds to help keep the town alive. He said each year 16 different organisations served up food at the three-day event. “We supply the facilities for them and they do the catering,” he said.

“All the profits get split between the 16 organisations.” Volunteers are a key part of Elmore Field Days’ success, helping with parking, traffic control and other aspects of the day-to-day running of the event. Mr Shotton said these volunteers selected a local group they wanted to be recognised for their work. “We have a lot of volunteers who come out every day and some nominate a different organisation every day and others are passionate about a certain one,” he said. “At the end of each field days and depending on the gate takings we work out an hourly rate which goes straight to the organisation.” Mr Shotton said a parcel pick-up system, run by a number of local groups, was introduced a couple of years ago.

“You pay $2 and the parcel pickup pick it up and take it to the nominated car park,” he said. “The organisations keep the $2 charge.” Throughout the year the Elmore Field Days Committee also funds important community programs such as fire trucks, sporting

facilities and a road safety program through the secondary school. “One of the first things we put money towards was a humidicrib for the Elmore Hospital,” he said. “Anything we can see giving a meaningful benefit to our community, we support.”

Why are more farmers making the change to Vitafarm?

Vitafarm milk replacers yielding outstanding results

It’s simple. Total Stockfeeds, manufacturers of the Vitafarm range of milk replacers, have recently developed a new scientifically formulated range of high-quality dairy-based milk replacers. These milk replacers focus on the optimum nutritional specifications required during the pre-weaning period, critical for the healthy growth and development of animals. They also supply high quality protein blends and dairy-based raw ingredients for a wide range of infant animals. All products are Feedsafe accredited and guarantee high performance in delivering the best in animal nutrition. Every raw ingredient is carefully selected and sourced from accredited suppliers to ensure all products are reliable in product consistency, quality and supply.

The new Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ handsets are also compatible with Telstra’s Voice over WiFi, enabling you to make and receive voice calls even if you have no mobile coverage as it uses your Fixed Broadband Wi-Fi connection.

Life in Wesley College’s Learning in Residence boarding community From her remote hometown of Finley in country NSW, Year 10 student and aspiring athlete Leia Varley made the move to Melbourne to become a full-time boarder at Wesley’s Learning in Residence last year. A passionate soccer player and shotput and discus athlete, Leia was drawn to the vast sporting opportunities available at the college. “I had heard that Wesley’s high-level sporting and coaching programs and facilities were among the best in the country, and I knew that this would be a great environment for me to study in and to further my sports talents,” Leia said. Boarding at Learning in Residence, at the Glen Waverley campus has opened up a world of opportunities for Leia, far removed from her former life in regional Australia. Prior to her transition, Leia’s sports training commitments required a daily six-hour round trip. As a learner in residence, Leia has full access to the state-of-the-art sporting facilities at Wesley’s senior school, with close proximity to public transport and the

convenience of private daily transportation to her soccer training, arranged by the college. She is currently in the Football Federation Victoria’s NTC Program, playing for the state team, and the Under-17 NSW Athletics Target Talent Program. Leia was surprised at how different Wesley’s Learning in Residence is from traditional boarding schools, with its strong sense of community and belonging. “We have grown to become like one big family,” she said. “We live within a diverse and closeknit community, where we have the opportunity to develop deep friendships with other students from around the world, and where mentors are always available to offer academic mentoring, support and care.”

See you at the Elmore Field Day 3-5 October Find us in the Agribusiness Pavilion

Wesley College’s Learning in Residence is a supportive and inclusive purpose-built residence for Senior School students (Years 10–12), who come from rural and regional Australia, metropolitan Melbourne and international locations. The innovative design of the facility, created by Cox Architecture, reflects the importance of social engagement within the learning process, and the need for all students to feel secure and at home. Each house is comprised of eight twin-share student bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and mentor living quarters. “It has an open and modern feel, where we really feel comfortable and at home—a home away from

home,” Leia said. Upon completing her schooling, Leia aspires to play soccer for an overseas college. Leia is a Learning in Residence scholarship recipient. Boarding scholarships are available for students in years 10 and 11. To find out more visit www.wesleycollege.net/scholarships, or to book a tour of the facilities, phone 03 81026508 or email admissions@wesleycollege.net

DISCOVER BOARDING AT WESLEY At Wesley, we recognise that young people are intellectual, emotional, physical, social, cultural and spiritual human beings. That’s why our new Learning in Residence program is carefully designed to enhance development across each of these dimensions. State-of-the-art boarding facilities are available for Senior School students (Years 10-12) at our Glen Waverley campus. Enrolments are open for full-time and weekly boarding options.

Showcasing several key features, the brand will highlight its focus on product evolution and customer satisfaction. Of considerable interest will be New Holland’s NH Drive concept autonomous tractor, a driverless machine, which can perform a wide range of farming tasks day and night. The Australian market is well known for its early adoption of innovation so at this year’s field days attendees will get a first glimpse of this innovative new technology. For the first time New Holland will also be displaying PLM universal run lines. The New Holland guidance system is now able to directly import

The turn is optimised according to speed, implement and conditions and can be programmed to skip

Offering higher density and better bale shape, the BigBaler features a bale chamber that is 80cm longer that its predecessor.

On the New Holland round baler, IntelliBale also stops the tractor, wraps and ejects the bale, and notifies the operator that it is safe to move forward again. All with no clutch or brake wear.

Balers are ready for a challenge Case IH has unveiled its new series of large square balers to the Australian market, designed for the toughest crop types in the most challenging of conditions. The Case IH LB434 XL series retains the features and adaptability of the current LB434 units, while introducing a range of new attributes to get the job done more efficiently. Available in two models, the LB434S XL standard and LB434R XL rotor cut, the new balers feature an 80cm longer bale chamber, wider panel widths to reduce material accumulation behind twine boxes, upgraded platform and hand railings, and new active bale eject system, while retaining 48 plunger strokes per minute, wide pick-ups and six double-tie knotters. Case IH hay and harvest product manager Tim Slater said the unit was perfectly designed for large-scale hay and forage operations with a lot of ground to cover. In lengthening the bale chamber, bale density has increased by up to 10 per cent from previous models with a more stable bale density in various operating conditions, and better bale shape.

The longer bale chamber also means bales exit the bale chute closer to the ground for a more gentle drop, minimising the risk of twine breakages. “Greater density means more crop per bale, decreasing bale count as well as reduced handling, wrapping and transportation costs, helping producers economically reach new markets,” Mr Slater said. Structurally, the LB434 XL series has been strengthened to accommodate the additional weight to the rear from the extended bale chamber, and the plunger has been upgraded to handle the higher anticipated loads from the increased density.

“Folding handrails have been redesigned to allow for more comfortable and safer access to the whole service area, and the new railings project further to the front of the machine to offer safer access to this area.” The new models also feature an active bale ejection system with full and partial bale eject, which replaces the previous passive system. In the new model, when the bale eject is operated the 10 bale eject

teeth are driven into the bale, ensuring all teeth are fully engaged to drive the bale out of the chamber. “These new balers are not only generating heavier bales with a greater density, but also providing the technology producers require to more efficiently harvest each crop at its peak nutritional value,” Mr Slater said. The Case IG LB434 XL series will be on display at this year’s Elmore Field Days at Site 771.

A new range of large square balers has been released by Case IH and will be on display at Elmore.

The increased space between the side frame and the twine boxes helps to reduce crop accumulation and provides more space on the maintenance platform. “Continual safety upgrades also remain a priority for Case IH and these new LB434 XL large square balers reflect that,” Mr Slater said.

Entegra handiwork on show at Elmore

The Elmore Events Centre stable pavilion designed by Entegra Signature Structures.

For 30 years, Entegra Signature Structures has been manufacturing custom designed and engineered sheds. When the founder Neville McCalman invented the world-first ‘curved roofline to ridgeback’ with his team, he knew that the future of shed structures was about innovation, not just having a shed that had a functional purpose. From one hay or machinery shed to another, the complex requirements that needed specific engineered designs to fit in the environmental surrounds where they were erected became critical to the longevity of the shed and its purpose. Entegra’s signature structures are skilfully transforming the shed industry and every element of the shed is now designed to protect the significant multi-use of the structure through innovation. Entegra Signature Structures

founder and managing director Neville McCalman said when they built a hay shed, it was not just about storing hay. “It’s about the engineering excellence required to ensure that the shed is built to last, with multi-purpose use and that it seamlessly fits in the environment in which it is placed,” Neville said. Entegra—then Swan Hill Engineering—designed, manufactured and constructed the two pavilions at Elmore Events Centre, home to Elmore Field Days. Greg McCalman was heavily involved in the design process of these buildings. “Elmore Events Centre approached us at the design phase of both their buildings, so we had to evaluate

what their requirements were and priorities,” Greg said. “We came up with multiple options which met their requirements as well as additional suggestions. “From here the details were finalised in terms of the exact dimensions of doors and clearance heights and we were able to draw the line between what the client required and their budget constraints.”

Elmore Events Centre president Derek Shotton said Entegra was an easy company to deal with. “Having used them for projects for other purposes too, they do follow through on their word, and ensure the quality of completion comes before the dollar,” Mr Shotton said.

Innovative developments for Davey

Davey’s Monsoon IQ booster system.

Davey is Australia’s best international water products company, designing, building and selling products to protect and enhance people’s lives with water. Innovation plays a significant role in Davey Water’s business strategy it will be showcasing three of its most significant developments at the 2017 Elmore Field Days.

Remote Start Firefighter is a ground-breaking update to Australia’s best-selling enginedriven pump.

The new Monsoon IQ booster system is the latest pump set package, featuring an intuitive touchscreen with remote monitoring and control, ideal for crop and vineyard irrigation, plus system optimisation for pressure-boosting applications.

For added security in a bushfire situation, or to eliminate travel time to a remotely located pump, the legendary Davey Firefighter now has a number of options for starting and stopping: manually, remotely via text message or automatically.

It uses variable speed drives on Davey pumps to control and cascade supply to match changing water demands.

To activate the pump, you can either send an SMS START command to the Remote Start Firefighter or utilise the automatic start facility either with a float switch for tank filling or a heat sensor system installed on your home.

The system reaches full optimisation when connected to the Cloud, allowing access and peace of mind

Davey’s new Remote Start Firefighter.

from anywhere in the world.

The new Remote Start Firefighter is also so intelligent, it sends you a pump status report via text message once it is started or stopped. The business’ third development is an all-in-one water treatment solution for dairy farms. If water is unpalatable, cows will drink less water, which can mean lower milk production. Davey’s Microlene dairy skid is a unique solution that treats water

for dairy herd consumption. The business sums this up as ‘better water, better milk’. For this and all of Davey’s technological insights, visit Site 321 and register your details to go in the draw to win a Davey 5165H Firefighter or a Davey 120L Eski.
