COMMBANK EVENTS FOR EVERYONE AT FARM WORLD Commonwealth Bank is pleased to continue its association with Farm World, Victoria’s premier agricultural field day, according to Executive General Manager for Regional and Agribusiness Banking, Geoff Wearne. “Supporting our communities is an important focus for Commonwealth Bank so we’re pleased to be on board as a strategic Farm World partner again this year,” Mr Wearne says. “The theme for 2016 is Dairy, an Industry on the Move, a fitting topic to explore as market opportunities continue to evolve.” One of the Bank’s headline events is its breakfast panel discussion. This year the invitation-only event will discuss the topic Future ready: Is agribusiness well positioned to implement the technology it’s most excited about? “Technology is evolving very rapidly and ensuring our agribusiness sector is well-positioned to maximise new opportunities will be vital to our future success. We have assembled a diverse panel of industry experts and professionals and we anticipate some thought-provoking discussion this year,” Mr Wearne says. Commonwealth Bank will be bringing its own new technology to Farm World, with its Albert EFTPOS tablet at all entry gates, allowing visitors to easily make card payments and access receipts. CommBank Executive General Manager Regional and Agribusiness Banking Geoff Wearne.

Mr Wearne says Commonwealth Bank has planned a broad range of activities for Farm World, and will bring a team of bank specialists along over the four days. “We’ve been supporting Farm World for more than 30 years but there’s always something new to see. Our local agribusiness bankers will be available to meet with visitors to the stand and some of our high profile specialists from within the Bank will also be attending to share their insights,” he says. “We’re also looking forward to being involved once again in the Women in Agriculture Luncheon and the inaugural Young Farmers Conference”.

Farm World 2016

Lots to see and do at Farm World 2016 It’s on again, Farm World Field Days will be held at Lardner Park near Warragul from Thursday April 7 to Sunday April 10 and they will be bigger and better than ever! Farm World has grown to be one of Australia’s largest regional agricultural events providing a unique platform for farm machinery manufacturers, suppliers and distributors to launch new products and to showcase their ranges. Exhibitors find it to be an essential venue to highlight changes in technology, and to maintain and establish new contacts. Farm World 2016 has incorporated a number of new initiatives and, with over 750 exhibitors, visitors will find a comprehensive range of products and displays to inspect and to gather the latest information to make important buying decisions. The theme for Farm World 2016 is ‘DAIRY – An industry on the move’, spotlighting the importance and future of the industry, with the focus on best practice, innovation and future careers. The dairy industry is Gippsland’s largest agricultural commodity and accounts for over 20% of Australia’s milk supply. GippsDairy and Dairy Australia are valued sponsors of the dairy theme which builds on Dairy Australia’s platform ‘LEGENDAIRY’ program showcasing the resilience and pride of the Australian dairy industry. Their stand at Farm World will highlight the various projects being undertaken including their focus farms and introducing adapting technologies to increase farm productivity. Dairy farmers’ confidence in the future of the industry remains buoyant and investing for the future will be a priority. Advances in farm machinery, genetics and technology continue to play an important role in improving farm productivity and the newest innovations and improvements will be on show, such as robotic milking systems, sexed semen, the automatic teat dipping and liner flushing system, mastitis detection and pasture improvement methods.

Young farmers are the future of the dairy industry A stimulating innovation added to this year’s program is the Young Farmers Conference which will run from 9.30am to 12.30pm on Saturday April 9. The conference’s emphasis will be on prime areas of interest for young farmers, particularly in the dairy sector, such as new technology, succession planning, alternate farming business structures and leadership opportunities in agriculture. The conference will feature a range of Australian and international speakers and is supported by the Commonwealth Bank, GippsDairy, Dairy Australia’s Young Dairy Network, Victorian Farmers Federation, Young Agribusiness Professionals, Young Potato People and Victorian Young Farmers. Inspirational women in the dairy industry The significant role that women play within the dairy industry will be a highlight of the ‘Women in Agriculture luncheon’ to be held on Thursday April 7. Janet Moxey, Dr Sinead De Gooyer and Dairy Australia’s Kelly Ward, will share their stories and insights. The function follows the ongoing success of ‘Ladies Day – Women in Agriculture’ and, linking in with the Farm World dairy theme, the Women in Agriculture luncheon is supported by LEGENDAIRY and Farm World Strategic Partners; the Commonwealth Bank, Evans Petroleum BP and the Baw Baw Shire Council. The inaugural Farm World Equestrian Expo The construction of a new Baw Baw Equestrian Centre on the western boundary of Lardner Park means that the ‘Farm World Equestrian Expo’ will be an exhilarating new addition to Farm World 2016. The Equestrian Expo is supported by both Pakenham Isuzu UTE and Gippsland Isuzu UTE. This will add a whole new dimension to the field days and its inclusion reflects the size and importance of the horse industry to both Gippsland and the regions surrounding Melbourne. Visitors to the Expo will be able to inspect a selection of dedicated equestrianrelated exhibitors, attend a

It’s that Farm World time of year again, and Evans Petroleum is inviting Gippslanders far and wide to celebrate another big year in agriculture from April 7 to 10. Joining Lardner Park as official Farm World partner for the 25th year running, the Evans team this year is particularly excited to honour the extraordinary contribution of the region’s dairy farmers. Evans Petroleum Managing Director Stuart Evans said Farm World’ 2016 theme - ‘Dairy – An Industry on the Move’ - puts a muchdeserved spotlight on the lynchpin of the region’s farming economy. “Evans delivers fuels and lubricants directly to hundreds of dairies across Gippsland, so we know just how fast and hard these blokes are working to keep the region moving,� Mr Evans said. “Our latest TV campaign highlights the fact Gippslanders are on the move, and dairy farmers are right at the front of that, so we are delighted one of our biggest customer bases continues to get the recognition it deserves.� This year will see the Evans Team setting up, once again, at the BP Ultimate Pavilion,

where customers old and new can experience the good old-fashioned reliable service that has made Evans a household name in Gippsland. “Farmers are often pretty time-poor, so often it’s only our drivers who get the chance to shake hands with our customers on a regular basis whenever they deliver diesel, lubricants and VDA certified AdBlue,� Mr Evans said. “That makes Farm World one of our favourite times of the year, as it’s the one event most farmers will squeeze into their calendar for a catch up and the latest tips

on how to improve on-farm productivity with the latest high quality fuels and lubricants.� Special Farm World 2016 Offer Mr Evans said farms and businesses running low on oil and lubricants this time of year could take advantage of Evans’ special 2016 Farm World offer. “All customers who buy a 205 litre drum of BP Oil will get 20 litres of mineral oil for free from our range of BP/Castrol lubricants – that’s worth up to $120,� Mr Evans said. “This offer is only valid at Farm World, so make sure

Q. IN THE PAST WHERE DID WE GET THE TRACE ELEMENTS FROM ? A. SINGLE SUPER PHOSPHATE! Q.WHERE HAVE THE TRACE ELEMENTS GONE? Some 30 years ago, legislation was introduced to prevent heavy metals accumulating throughout the food chain, and granular fertilizers were stripped of all heavy metal impurities, including trace elements. Since then there has not been a simple and effective method of applying soil stable trace elements! Originally Single Super was calcified bird droppings mined from Christmas Island. We know wherever water-birds congregate, we will find an accumulation of trace elements at high levels in the soil. We still find in soil testing on coastal areas and along waterways, that the trace elements are off the scale, but even within the same paddock where birds are not congregating trace elements are commonly deficient! However neglecting the application of trace elements to your property over extended periods will adversely affect the productiveness of your farming enterprise. Pastures and crops are far less productive on the lower levels of trace elements. For generations, the use of trace elements was a normal agricultural practice, as they were present in ample quantities in Single Super, the most commonly used granular fertiliser of its time. The pastoral industry standard is only 3 leaves on each tiller between grazing, but it is possible in all varieties to grow 4 to 5 leaves on each tiller between grazing. Another common trace element deficiency is seen in poor tillering and even in poor row closure after re-sowing. These poor responses can all be solved with the correct levels of trace elements. As soon as the trace elements have been corrected in the soil, the fertiliser regime can be streamlined, thereby giving maximum response to your on-going granular fertiliser program.

“BASIX TRACE ELEMENTS ARE UNIQUE�

F00595

They are soil stable, and give a long term result across all soil types, regardless of rainfall or your farming enterprise. Annual applications are made until further soil tests confirm you have reached optimum levels with no further applications being required until the traces have been farmed out, shown simply by monitoring subsequent soil tests, usually every two to three years. Basix Trace Elements are boom sprayed on to pastures after grazing, in moist conditions, where it is washed into the soil, and remains soil stable and plant available. There is no with-holding time necessary. For crop applications, Basix Trace Elements are boom sprayed any time from sowing to early stages of plant establishment. They can also applied through irrigation dripper systems or even sprayed on to bare moist soil prior to sowing.

Unique Solutions - Unique Display The entire Pasture, Grain and Vegetable display is grown on a Basix Trace Elements pack specially formulated for fast root zone dispersal. It is soil stable, plant available and non-leeching. All Basix Trace Elements retailers will be on-site during Farm World to discuss the value of these unique products in reducing pasture and crop production losses.

In previous years, we have displayed some of the cereal grains such as oats, barley, triticale, wheat and even peas and canola. Adding to this, we have now included many food grains (rye, rice, sunflower, chia, linseed, quinoa, amaranth, lupin, spelt, grain sorghum, teff, maize, chickpeas and buckwheat) as well as a range of beans (adzuki, black turtle, pinto, northern, red kidney, cannellini, borlotti, soy, faba, broad and mung) and even peanut and lupini to round off the grains display.

Peas

Amaranth Buckwheat

Chia

Pasture Keeping a total of 46 varieties, some from each category, we have now added 60 new varieties to grow alongside the old. Included in the display are annuals, biannuals and perennials of ryegrasses, and perennials of cocksfoot, phalaris, brome, fescue, rhodes, setaria, panic and timothy grasses. Legumes including clovers (sub, white, arrow, persian, crimson, rose, red, berseem, balansa, and strawberry), medics (burr, hybrid, strand, barrel, and sphere) lucerne, and non-bloating legumes (sulla, serradella and biserulla) are also displayed, as are chicory, plantain, brassicas and sugar beet.

Vegetables The vegetable display is just as diverse as the pastures and grains display. As well as peas and potatoes, both recognised commercial crops in the Gippsland region, the display also includes many other vegetables of interest for commercial production. With the rise in consumer interest in Asian Vegetables, we show a wide variety of these, along with numerous Salad Greens, Mustard Greens, Lettuces and Radishes. Sweet Potatoes of three varieties round out the Vegetable Display.

Ryegrass Cereal Rye Mark Roberts, of Basix Trace Elements, acknowledges the foresight, direction and support of the Chief Executive Officer, Mark Cockerell, in the establishment and continued success of the Combined Seed, Fertilizer and Irrigation site, and more recently the current Pasture, Grain and Vegetable display. Many thanks.

Over 150 stud cattle have blood lines from Boongatti, Rosedale, ANC, Nargoon, Sedalia, AYR, Carabinier, Pinay, SVY, Jay Tees, Tirrikieetc. The herd comprises of both E and F grades in both horned and poll form. The stud is building up on poll blood lines in both E and F grades. Bulls which are being used now are from Rosedale, ANC and Boongatti (a son of Pinay). These bulls have been producing some excellent progeny and this will be the first production sale. Bruce has worked with cattle all of his life having stud cattle in 1972 including a Melbourne Show Grand Champion bull. He then moved into cross bred Charolais and then progressed into stud Charolais. His family on both sides have been in the cattle industry. Cattle are situated in Northern Victoria (Kerang/ Swan Hill) and Crossover, Victoria (West Gippsland). Replacement cows are evaluated for temperament, confirmation, fertility and production. Cows are both white and red factor and they are catering for beef production. P.S The controversial ‘50 Shades of Hay’ life-size structure will also be onsite at Farm World.

Farmer gets 18 year battery life Lead acid batteries usually die prematurely from sulphation build-up on internal lead plates and, according to Gerard Anselmi of RECHARGE Battery Revitalizer & Conditioner, sulphation is very easy to treat and prevent premature battery failure with their simple ‘Recharge’ Battery Conditioning Program, “We have been saying for years that farmers are getting 8 to 10yrs in our battery conditioning program. “However, most shows we do these days we meet people using our RECHARGE Battery Conditioning Program with 12 and 14 year old batteries often still going,” says Anselmi. “In fact in 2014 we had three farmers with 17 year old batteries and one of

them was a Canterbury farmer who returned to our last show of the year back in NZ at the Christchurch A&P show in November 2015 to say his tractor battery was now 18 and still running like new. “He was very pleased with the results,” says Anselmi, “After 18 years on the market in NZ & 12 years in Australia I would not be surprised if we bettered that figure given time” A RECHARGE treatment will dissolve the lead sulphate build-up turning those sulphur ions back into sulphuric acid electrolyte holding electrons. “We are chemically reversing the sulphation build-up process, one chemical reaction to counter another,” says Anselmi.

“Once treated a battery is essentially running at full capacity, provided the lead plates are still in good condition and prevention is the key. Treat them early repeat every 2 – 3 years and keep them charged.” Please note: we have a new site this year after 11 years in E-street, Gerard and Debbie will be at the Farm World Field Days 2016 on their new site N-10a. The 500ml farmer pack works out at around $4.50 per car battery. A more cost effective 2litre commercial pack is also available and that pack can also be purchased on line at www.recharge.net.nz or on Ebay. However as RECHARGE is acid based it is dangerous goods and expensive to

freight: the 2-litre bottle is therefore, the only one that we sell directly and it is far cheaper at the field days. And yes, you can treat sealed batteries simply by drilling into each cell treat-

ing and resealing with silicone, sika-flex or a plastic bung. Recharge is also great for deep cycle batteries like forkifts, golf carts, scissor hoists and lighting system batteries.

McIntosh Brothers from New Zealand are proud to release and for the first time displayed in Australia their new Multi Bale Feeder at Farm World 2016. The new multi bale feeder is designed to load, carry and feed out up to four round bales of silage or hay in one load and this will greatly improve the efficiently for farmers that have to feed larger herds. The Multi Bale Feeder has many unique features and has been designed with strength, outstanding performance and ease of use in mind. Based on the popular trailed bale feeder design that won the TMA best non-powered machine of the year award at Farm World in 2014, we have used many of the same features including the bale loading system. This system allows the operator to lift and hold the bale above the platform for easy removal of the nett and wrap. This is a great feature for people that want to use rotorcut or fine silage bales that tends to fall apart once the nett has been removed. The bale transfer system holds two bales and allows the operator to push each bale into the feeding cradle. Specially designed feeder slats allow easy transfer of the bales but ensuring aggression for even and consistent feeding of the bales. The dual sided feeding cradle allows the operator to accurately control the amount of fodder he requires to feed out no matter which way the bale is placed into the cradle. The new style vertical drop side feeder chains assist in the prevention of the wheels running over the material. Other features like a rear step, large nett and wrap storage bins and 2 remote operation are all designed to make feeding the bales quicker and easier. The multi bale feeder is also able to feed out large square bales or a combination of both. On recent trials at a local farm, we discovered we could place a large square bale onto the transfer table and still carry two round silage bales on the front and rear of the machine. Without changing anything on the machine, the operator was able to feed both the large square bale and silage bales evenly and constantly to his herd without fuss. Like all McIntosh equipment, strength and durability are key features in all of their machines. The low profile heavy duty chassis and tandem axles are designed to give the machine a low centre of gravity for better stability. With bales increasing in size and weight, we have trialled this machine with large 5ft rotor-cut silage bales weighing up to 1300kg and it handled them and fed them out with ease. The larger hydraulic motor, heavy duty feeder chains and dual ram lift system are all designed with strength and give years of trouble free service. For more details or to come and inspect this machine for yourself, please come to the TracMac Farm Equipment stand at site CB 126 at Farm World or contact them on 5625 1522 or mobile 0418 515 510.

metre width track axle with 24 inch lug tyres up to an adjustable track option fitted with 44 inch lug tyres. The intermediate choices also include a turf tyre choice and also a Simplicity axle fitted with 15 inch lug tyres. Recognising that every farm has different characteristics the spray boom choices range from a 10 metre spray width hydraulic fold Devil Boom and then in graduations of 12, 15 and 18 metre booms including self levelling, hydraulic lift and airbag suspension options. Additional options available ex factory from Silvan include two different foam markers, a chemical hopper, three or five section electric over hydraulic controls and two hose reel choices with hose length and nozzle choices to suit any proposed spot spraying application. Silvan Australia’s spraying specialist Chris Tait says that his company’s long experience and leadership in

spraying equipment and accessories confirms that every proposed application is different. “Our farmer and contractor clients always want options to ‘spec their sprayer’ to their individual operational needs. “Silvan believes that by offering a strong feature based 2,500 or 3,000 litre capacity trailed spray tank it addresses the core requirement with the ability to add the operational and boom choices needed to address the infield requirements on farm. “It is likely to be well recognised as the solution on which the best operational choices can be built” Mr Tait says. The base price for the 2,500 litre Silvan Pasture Sprayer ranges from $21,495 including GST.

Rossi Boots is a next-generation manufacturer with the soul of a master boot maker from 1910 and one of the few remaining boot makers committed to manufacturing in Australia. Rossi Boots craft their boots with a team of skilled sewing machinists, cutters and craftspeople, retaining manufacturing skills in Australia and imbuing their products with the quality that comes from taking pride in their craft. Rossi Boots use full grain

leather, oiled leather, nubuck and suede. They embrace the latest in technical innovations with features that offer greater abrasion resistance, flexibility, protection and most importantly, comfort. Rossi has come a long way since Arthur Rossiter started making boots in his backyard shed in 1910. Technology has changed and the factory is bigger, but the principles of craftsmanship and comfort remain the same. When you invest in a Rossi Boot, you get timeless quality and attention to detail other brands have long forgotten.

After a century of crafting boots, they know quality never goes out of style and they cite it as the secret to a boot that lasts and feels so comfortable, you forget they’re on your feet. Visit Farm World site 112113 for more information.

Rossi ‘Endura’ work boots feature a rubber sole for maximum comfort.

Line 7 have quality premium bib trousers that cover all your bases. The bib is technically advanced with a three layer system providing superior breathability and is 100% wind and waterproof. Line 7 began in 1963 making wet-weather clothing for sailors. New Zealand’s high rainfall and harsh conditions made it the perfect testing grounds. Line 7’s reputation for manufacturing quality products soon spread, and using the design expertise and technical knowledge gained in the sailing market, they diversified to a wider range of industries including the agricultural sector. Over the years the brand has cemented themselves as market leaders in manufacturing quality, innovative garments. They have grown to become a Kiwi icon in agricultural, retail lifestyle, and marine clothing. Visit Farm World site 112-113 to learn more about Darche and Line 7.

Experience better hearing and trial hearing aids at no cost, obligation or commitment

Everyday thousands of Australians with hearing loss struggle through conversations instead of enjoying the rich sounds that life has to offer. The joys of hearing and being able to engage in conversation are what many take for granted. Do you find yourself nodding at the right times, rather than really hearing what others are saying and joining in the conversation, then now is the time to take action. HearCare’s goal is to provide excellence in service to those with hearing problems. We are independently owned and are an accredited hearing clinic through the Office of Hearing Services. HearCare are inviting Farm World attendees an offer to participate in our free four week clinic trial of the new MoxiTM hearing aids an award winning product for design. The latest technological advances, delivering comfort, natural sound quality and better understanding of speech in presence of background noise. Local Hearing Care Practitioner, Mr. Previn Pillay is certainly impressed, Unitron has innovative technologies for real life needs. After your hearing assessment if eligible I will fit you with the trial hearing aids that very same day.

TA L K TO U S AT LA K E S ID E PAV IL IO N

The trial is set for four weeks you then can experience the benefits of better hearing in the comfort of all your listening environments home, work or social activities. According to Mr. Pillay “Hearing speech in noise has always been the biggest challenge for those with hearing loss. ‘The new Moxi range lifts speech out of noisy environments, maintaining signal fidelity for all of life’s important sounds’ “As the world gets louder, the age of those with hearing loss gets younger. The effect of noise exposure means we are increasingly seeing people in their 40s and 50s coming to us with a hearing problem,� said Mr. Pillay. HearCare provide free hearing evaluations and expert advice on hearing aids. To book your trial or for more information on hearing loss speak to our friendly team, Call 5625 5155.

The alpaca industry started in Australia the same year as the ostrich and emu industries and it is not only still here, but the alpaca industry is really hitting its strides. The meat and skin industry is well and truly under way, numerous mini mills for processing the fleece are now in operation, fleece is also being sold internationally, breeding stock has and is being exported to China and some fabulous fleece is being grown. This fleece is translating into garments and bedding with the ‘whoo’ factor. The alpaca is an extremely versatile animal with many going on lifestyle blocks and into small and big herds as herd protectors. There are also herds of 100 to 2000 where breeding and fleece production is a priority.

Leading European technology to debut at Farm World THE latest offerings from some of Europe’s leading farm machinery manufacturers, including CLAAS, AMAZONE and Fliegl, will be on show at the CLAAS Harvest Centre display at Farm World, to be held 7–10 April at Larder Park. New CLAAS technology on display includes AXION 900/800 and ARION 600/500 advanced technology tractors, the CARGOS 8000 compact dual-purpose loader/transport wagon. “With continuously variable transmission, four-point cabin suspension and cutting-edge on-board technology, AXION and ARION are arguably the most advanced, efficient, versatile and comfortable mid-range tractors on the market,” CLAAS Harvest Centre Dealer Principal, Anthony Blackshaw says. “Likewise, we think the new CARGOS 8000 of loader/transport wagons will be perfect for Gippsland producers and contractors. “The three models have a loading volume of between 30 and 41 cubic metres and each can be easily converted from a high performance loader wagon to a high capacity forage transport wagon in less than 15 minutes.” Also on display will be several models from the revamped DISCO series of mowers and mower-conditioners, which boasts 28 new models with operating widths from 2.6 to 10.7 m. All models incorporate the new MAX CUT cutterbar, whose innovative one-piece, wave-shaped bar ensures optimal cutting quality, efficiency and durability under all conditions. Another new addition to the CLAAS Harvest Centre stable is the Fliegl VFW slurry tanker. Availabe in a range of capacities up to 18,000, the German-engineered tankers area an extremely efficient solution for one of the less glamorous tasks associated with intensive livestock production. “Traditionally, slurry tankers have been regarded simply as a means of getting rid of waste product,” Anthony says. “Fliegl has turned this concept on its head by addressing not only how this waste can be handled efficiently, but how its nutrient value can be fully utilised. “In many ways, VFW tankers are probably better described as being fertiliser spreaders than slurry tankers.” *Normal lending criteria applies. Minimum liquid deposit 20%. 12 month term. 12 monthlyanti-sloshing payment in arrears. Offer ends 31/10/15. Standard features include a 15 cm suction valve with quick coupler, self-emptying siphon, level indicator, baffle, on-board hose storage and 600 mm access hole for easy cleaning.

Options include an automatic coupling system, turbo assist with elephant arm for even faster filling and a hydraulic agitator to improve material flow and prevent blockages. A range of discharge heads, dribble bars or integrated drill, injector, disc or coulter combinations ensure fast and efficient spreading onto pastures or incorporation into soil. Despite its impressive capacity, the VFW has a surprisingly modest width of just 2.5 metres, allowing easy passage through standard farm gates. Fliegl produces a range of high performance agricultural trailers, including ASW ‘push-off’ trailers, TDK three-way trailers and ADS muck spreaders. “A push-off trailer is the perfect partner for CLAAS fodder harvesting technology, combining high capacity with rapid unloading of silage,” Anthony says. *CFS standard terms, conditions & fees apply. 1.99% rate subject to minimum 20% deposit.

The two rear tusk rollers have a levelling mechanism and height adjustment. Soil is lifted, the surface is cultivated, and crop residue is partially incorporated to speed-up decomposition. Often cereal crops, legumes and maize can be re-seeded after a one pass cultivation. Most beneficial organisms in the soil are aerobic; most detrimental organisms in the soil are anaerobic. Good aeration will inhibit the damaging organisms and encourage the beneficial ones. This will be a healthier soil which will mineralise and recycle nutrients more effectively and provide a more sustainable system. Healthy soil is the best and cheapest way to produce healthy plants. This won’t happen with toxic inputs. Soils need adequate air. So to improve your soil and save on costly and often damaging inputs, the FIX Rehabilitator Plough could well be the answer!

Late lactation milk fever

CopRice pellets can complement your on farm feed resources to maximise the production and profitability of your dairy herd. Late lactation milk fever can often be due to cows milking harder towards the end of lactation and the possibility of not having enough calcium left in her reserves. Cows need calcium for bone and teeth formation, transmission of nerve impulses, muscle excitability, cardiac regulation, blood clotting and the activation and stabilisation of enzymes. Basically, it is a very important mineral to the cow and makes up nearly two percent of her body weight. Most farmers would have seen milk fever most commonly in the herd immediately after calving. Milk fever occurs due to the inability to digest and utilise dietary calcium, or mobilise bone calcium quickly enough to satisfy demands for milk production. The frequency of late lactation milk fever increases with: â—? cold, wet weather conditions â—? higher producing cows â—? as the age of the cow increases so does the risk â—? higher body condition score cows â—? jerseys seem to be more susceptible. It is most important for the late lactation milk fever cows to be fed a lead feed ration like CopRice lead feed prior to their next calving. The anionic salts help the cow absorb calcium from her diet and at the same time mobilise more calcium from her bones. Cows with late lactation milk fever will be at a greater risk of developing milk fever around calving.

Gendore Tractors and machinery has a long and proud association with New Holland, which dates back to 1948 when Gendore’s founder, Lew Genoni was dealing with Australia’s first New Holland distributor, Doring Implements. Today’s New Holland company is enormously different to those times operating as a massive global business with production facilities for its vast range of tractors and implements on every continent. Gendore also is a different company to what they were in 1948, with the company remaining a family-owned business under the leadership of Lew’s grandson, Derek Genoni. The company now plays a major role as the only dealer for New Holland Agriculture in Gippsland, with branches in Leongatha, Tooradin and its new premises at 180 Queen Street in Warragul. Gendore general manager Tim Burgess, said the company’s expansion into Warragul and throughout Gippsland is the perfect opportunity to grow both New Holland’s and Gendore’s business in the region. “New Holland has a strong history in Gippsland and we plan to reinforce that with quality customer support through all our branches,” he said. “Gendore has a long association with

SERVING THE AGRICULTURAL INDUSTRY FOR MORE THAN 60 YEARS!

Farm World 2016

Giltrap Bale Feeder Release Giltrap have announced the release of their proven range of bale feeders on to the Australian market. The Giltrap name is well known for high quality farm machinery and the bale feeders are no exception. Giltrap took over the 30 year old DML brand in 2005 and the experienced design team have worked with farmers to develop easy to operate, versatile and low maintenance bale feeders. As with most trailed bale feeders the feed out area and the loading system do the most work. Giltrap have paid particular attention to the feed out area by locating the aggressive feed bars at an optimum spacing to ensure bales of all types from hard to soft core are efficiently fed out. Reliability, longevity and strength of drive chains are what most farmers look for. The use of large profile 7500 and 15000lb solid pin roller chains satisfies that desire. Chain adjusters on cast bearings make light work of chain tensioning if needed. Fully enclosed drive shafts prevent feed from wrapping around them, and in turn save time by not having to clean them. The use of Giltrap’s proven cast bearings require minimal service but have long lasting benefits. A simple push or pull of the tractor’s hydraulic remote controls provide feeding out to either side. On trailed feeders, safe loading of bales of various shapes and weights, plus the removal of different types of wrapping is a serious consideration for all users. Giltrap’s unique sequential hydraulic loading system provides peace of mind that bales up to 1500kg in weight will be easily and gently loaded onto the feed bed. Full control of the bale at any position during loading further enhances this process. Bales are securely spiked for loading, then lifted to a convenient position for the removal of plastic or net wrap, and then lowered carefully onto the feed bed. Giltrap have designed the loading mechanism in such a way that when the spikes are pulled from the bale, it is not lifted off the feed bed. Knowing where to position the spikes to pick up the bale is simply taken care of by an ingenious stop on the lifting frame. Stability is always a safety concern when

feeding out and that is why the Giltrap G2X2 has an adjustable axle and a swivel towing eye. The larger rolling diameter of the 11.5/80x15.3 wheels make towing the G2X2 easy and in situations where more flotation is required, wheels can be simply upgraded to the larger 400/60-15.5. Storage for the removed wrap or net is always a frustration. The G2X2 comes standard with a large capacity twine box fitted to the front of the unit. The streamlined shape of the twine box allows for sharp turns. The lid is securely held closed with a heavy duty magnet which can also be used to hold a knife in a recess under the lid. Giltrap have also drawn on feedback from users of three point linkage feeders to develop the G2 which has proven to be a very reliable and easy to operate feeder. Being able to load and operate the G2 linkage feeder from either end saves time through less tractor movements. The feed out bed incorporates many of the same features as the trailed feeder. Keeping weight close to the back of the tractor is achieved by having the lower linkage points mounted inside the full width head stock, meaning smaller tractors can handle this machine with ease. The headstock has bolt-in high tensile tynes for loading bales and carrying the feed out bed. Once coupled up, the two components are securely held together with a locking pin, easily released with a rope pull. High tensile cast steel drive couplings provide a long lasting, positive drive to the feed out chains. Like the trailed G2X2 feeder the linkage G2 incorporates many of the same features providing the operator a feeder that can reliably and efficiently feed out their bales for many years. The G2X2 trailed feeder and the G2 linkage feeder provide many benefits to purchasers and Giltrap recommends anybody considering a new bale feeder to speak with their local Giltrap distributor.

Pasture, grain and vegetable display area 2016 Now in its ninth year, the Pasture Grain and Vegetable site has successfully displayed a diverse range from every commercial pasture seed breeding company in southern Australia.

The inclusion of grains and vegetables in 2015 was met with continual interest throughout the event, leading to an increased variety of grains and pulses, and an updated range of vegetable

varieties in this year’s display. As always, the site focuses on increased farm productivity and the use of commercially simple and successful fertiliser regimes.

Farm World has grown to be Australia’s key pasture and fodder focused field days. The Basix Trace Elements team have expanded the display to include a greater

option of varieties highlighting the diversity of agriculture across southern Australia. The pasture display has identified and proven the universally successful varieties of pastures, including grasses, legumes, herbs and brassicas. The previous showing of the most successful varieties, some from each category, has again been updated. Sown at the same time, with the same fertiliser and irrigated at the same time, comparisons will be clear for all to see. Included in the display are annuals, bi-annuals and perennials of ryegrasses, and perennials of cocksfoot, phalaris, brome, fescue, and timothy grasses. Legumes, including

clovers (sub, white, arrow, persian, crimson, rose, red, berseem, balansa, and strawberry), medics (bur, hybrid, strand, barrel, and sphere), lucerne, and non-bloating legumes (sulla, serradella and biserulla) will also be displayed, as well as chicory, plantain, brassicas and sugar beet. The array of stockfeed cereal grains such as oats, triticale, wheat and grain sorghum has been expanded with several varieties of maize and a greater focus on pulses, lentils, chickpeas, peas and faba beans. Canola, rye, rice, chia, linseed, quinoa, amaranth, buckwheat, peanuts, broad beans, cannellini, borlotti, red kidney, adzuki, lupin, lupini, great northern, pinto, black turtle, soy and mung beans included.

The vegetable display reflects the potential of different types in the region. Several varieties of potatoes and peas recognise the significance of these crops to the local economy. Sweet potatoes, a wide range of Asian vegetables and salad greens round off a most interesting and colourful display. All are sown on a base dressing granular fertiliser blend, and a new Basix Trace Element pack formulated for fast root zone dispersal. All growers, whether commercial, lifestyle or general interest, will find plenty of variety across the whole site. More information about Farm World 2016 is available at www.lardner park.com.au

The new bags feature a separate tab and rip which will make opening them a much faster and easier prospect and are loaded with other features including attractive photo quality information on both the front and back of the bags and includes feeding instructions, and an anti-skid design to provide stability in pelletisation and bag stitch allowing the stock feed to breathe. “The stock feed will be the same quality product which saw us become a top four stock feed distributor with MG Trading across Victoria (in our first year) but the bag design is now far superior,” said Marketing Manager Nick Reid. “We believe the previous bag designs weren’t adequately supporting the message we try to project to our customers, which is

He said Reid Stockfeeds understood that the dairy industry has seasonal feeding needs and it was important that their packaging reflects the quality of crushed grain mixes that are put together by their multi certified milling plants. “We back our products for superior consistency and quality against most other competitors in stock feed. Our plants are all ISO9001 certified together with being Feedsafe accredited. Striving for better processes is a constant which has been key to our business over the last 33 years.” “Particular focus has been investment in our mill infrastructure in the last 12-months to ensure the customer is supplied with crushed grain’s formulations that meet an even higher level of scrutiny”.

Lots of interest for Young Farmers at Conference

The inaugural Farm World Young Farmers Conference will be held in conjunction with Farm World Field Days at Lardner Park, Warragul, on Saturday April 9. With ABC Gippsland Rural Reporter, Laura Poole, as master of ceremonies, the conference will focus on prime areas of interest for young farmers such as new technology, succession planning, alternate farming business structures and leadership opportunities in agriculture. New technology for livestock producers available now and coming in the future will be the subject of a presentation by Zac Economu, a sheep farmer and research fellow at the University of New England. These advances would include precision livestock management, virtual fencing and remote sensing of pastures. New Zealand dairy farmer,

Ben Smith, will discuss his concept ‘Circular Solutions’, which incorporates a closed loop system where effluent waste is converted through a bio-digester to produce either fertiliser for pasture and crops, fish food for his developing aquaculture business or bedding material for his cows. He uses a large range of technologies including electronic cow, effluent, water and irrigation monitoring and is planning to add an automated dairy system in the future. Alternative farming models and the options for being self-employed in agriculture without owning land assets will be discussed by John Mulvany from OMJ Consulting. Succession planning is one of the biggest challenges facing farmers and involves a process that may take 10 to 15 years. A panel discussion chaired by the

Aussie Disposals celebrating 50 years of Retail

Swanndri New Zealand is pleased to announce its partnership with Aussie Disposals at the upcoming Farm World event. New Zealand’s strongest clothing brand with a history spanning 103 years continues to evolve its range from the traditional “Swannie”, which is still among its best-selling garments, to now include a broad array of products for lovers of Swanndri to wear all year round. The original Bushshirt is still manufactured using traditional methods and with 100 per cent New Zealand wool. These bushshirts which have been on the backs of anyone who enjoys working or playing in the great outdoors the world over, have consistently delivered a life cycle of well over 25 years, with many lasting beyond 40 years. This represents amazing value and is unmatched by others who may have tried to imi-

The original Bushshirt have been on the backs of anyone who enjoys working or playing in the great outdoors. tate their great brand over a number of years. Swanndri New Zealand in its further commitment to servicing the local Australian market has recently established distribution capabilities in the South-East of Melbourne, ensuring local support to

all Australians, but more importantly to the people of the Gippsland region. Come and visit them at the Aussie Disposals site number 112-113 and check out some of the range for yourself. Swanndri – “Outdoors Everyday Since 1913”

Mobius Materials Recovery Mobius Materials Recovery is a specialist provider of waste management and site cleaning services for the construction industry. Builders all over Melbourne and Victoria are already reaping the rewards from Mobius' one stop shop approach. Soil and rock deliveries/pickup, bobcat services, hourly labour hire, site cleans, OHS cleans, backfills, fixed prices and site-per-site quoting are all part of the service. Together they are achieving a more cost effective recycling solution and striving to divert around 90 per cent of excess building materials from landfill. The company's purpose-built sorting facility in Dandenong receives, separates and recovers many different waste streams. Current common practice in the industry limits the recycling capabilities due to products needing to be placed in different bins on each building site. The Mobius approach allows the builders to place all their waste in or next to the one Mobius cage or bin. On average a standard new home produces 18-30 tonnes of waste materials including concrete, bricks, timber, plasterboard, etc. which are suitable for recovery. 18 tonnes is approximately the volume of 6 cars. Considering there are over 36,000 new homes built in Victoria each year, that is a lot of waste that can be saved from landfill. The Dandenong sorting facility produces recycled crushed rock, timber mulch, soil, waste to energy product and returns metals, paper and cardboard into manufacturing. Mobius currently supplies their large format timber mulch to dairy and cattle farmers to provide long- lasting dry and diseasefree access to laneways and calving bays along with providing weed and erosion control. Their crushed rock product is also proving to be a valued product for temporary access pavements and backfills. Mobius is a company with a conscience and interest in reducing landfill, providing builders with data on how to reduce their building waste along with a multitude of different on-site services and providing Victoria with an economical supply of longlasting farm-grade mulch.

The business now known as Christensen’s Motorcycles was started in 1923 and purchased by the Christensen family in 1937. The business has had only five owners since 1923. Christensen’s Motorcycles has been attending Farm World since 1999 and you can be sure to expect the same high level of service and the same familiar faces at the event this year including proprietor Steve Cooper and his locally based staff. Through Christensen’s Motorcycles, Steve supports a large number of local clubs, charities and community events through donations each year. The business employs local staff and purchases its supplies from local businesses where possible. These local staff and businesses then support other local businesses to create a strong local economy. Money spent in West Gippsland businesses circulates throughout the region many times, stimulating the economy over and over. In many cases money spent outside West Gippsland never returns to the district. When considering your motorcycle needs Steve encourages you to keep your money local and support Christensen’s Motorcycles, based in Warragul.

Healthy soils need plenty of air 20cm x 25cm deep. If there is a clear line between a profusion of roots at the top of the soil block in a dark crumbly soil, and then a lower layer of hard, dense packed looking soil, the soil structure is poor. A good soil structure and a healthy worm population go hand in hand. Earthworms are a good indicator of the soils biological status. In a well structured, healthy and fertile soil there should be more than 20 worms in every spade sample. If there is less than 10, there is a good chance there is a problem with the soil structure and the quickest and easiest solution is likely to be mechanical aeration or tined rippers to improve this soil structure. During the late winter and early spring months is the best time for aeration. When there is enough moisture in the soil to allow aerators to penetrate and break up the hard pan of sub soil below the root system, lift and loosen the top soil and allow spring rains to absorb and retain into the soil. James Engineering in New Zealand has been developing, testing and working with farmers for over 30 years in the development of aerators to improve soil structure. Their new series of aerators feature fine shank tines with individual coulters fitted for minimal top surface disturbance. Tyne spacing and shape, designed to break up and loosen the hard pan and compacted soils underneath. Two types of models are available with both shear bolt protection or new style auto reset tines are available for grounds with rocks or stumpy conditions. Mike Keys from James Engineering says it is more ever important to get the most out of your pastures. With the ever increasing costs of fertilisers and the costs of renovating your pasture, aeration can be a more cost effective alterative. Aeration can improve soil structure, assist in unlocking soil fertility and improve root development of pastures for greater ability to produce grass. TracMac Farm Equipment will be displaying the range of James aerator on their stand CB126 at Farm World 2016 or you can contact us on 5625 1522 or 0418 515510.

Don’t keep putting good fertilizer on compacted soils that can’t absorb it. Aeration can improve moisture retention and allow the roots to penetrate deeper to absorb the moisture. Aeration will also promote healthy worm and micro organism development that improves soil fertility. NOW AT 86 ROBERTS CRT, DROUIN 5625 1522

SOIL fertility is generally held to be the most significant factor in maximising pasture and crop growth. For years we have done tests that are designed to establish the PH levels and if there are any deficiencies in essential mineral levels in the soil, and if so, apply the appropriate fertilisers to correct these. But with the recent increase in fertiliser prices and lack of availability, alternative methods may be needed to keep improving soil fertility. One way can be the use of aerators to loosen compacted soils, allowing oxygen to enter the soil and can unlock these nutrients that are retained in the soils. The limitation of the oxygen supply to soils has a direct effect on plants and a severe effect on the myriad of micro and macro soil organisms that are essential in establishing and maintaining a healthy and productive soils. A sure sign of compaction is the root system of the plants. In compacted soils the plant roots tend to grow sideways, so growth will be limited by intensive competition for and less availability of soil moisture and nutrients. Plants will also tend to have their crowns higher out of the ground, so they are more susceptible to damage from grazing and treading. Autumn ‘pulling’ of rye grass will also be more of a problem. Greater depth of root structure will give a greater ability to produce grass growth during dry times and will unlock nutrients retained in the soil. Also aeration can be good to improve pastures that are starting to drop their growth rates but still have a good grass base to work with. Aeration can release lock-up nutrients and allow the root system to redevelop without the expensive and time out of action of a full pasture renovation. Another sign of compacted soils is the inner ability of the soil to absorb moisture from the recent rains. If the ground is showing signs of water logging with water remaining to the top of the surface, aeration will greatly benefit the soils ability to absorb moisture and then allow the plants root system to utilise this moisture during the summer months. Soil structure can easily be checked by visual inspection. With a spade, dig out a block of soil to the dimensions of 20cm x

Can you afford not to buy Australian made? Leading farm machinery manufacturer, John Berends Implements, continues to service the agricultural sector with Australian made, high quality and well priced farm implements. Operating since 1966 and

still family owned, the company is one of the few of its kind, still keeping as much of the range made in Australia as possible. General Manager, Derrick Berends, says “A growing number of Australian

Manufacturers have either fallen by the wayside or have reverted to importing their product out of China. This can result in cheaper products available for the consumer. Unfortunately, it is almost

always at the expense of quality. Many a hobby farmer has been caught out thinking “we haven’t got much work to do with it so we can’t justify spending much”. Unfortunately, poor quality

machinery and the hours it is used don’t necessarily follow any set pattern. For example, a slasher blade made from the wrong grade material will just as likely break on the first stone it strikes as it will the 1000th stone. Despite this increasing pressure from cheap imports, Berends continues to be one of the leading manufacturers in tractor implements in Australia. Part of this reason is their ability to keep designing dif-

ferent products to suit the ever changing market. Although having a large product range can have its challenges, the diversity of it keeps production constantly busy. A recent example of the changing range is the new 3.0m trailing grader which was first built as a one-off in 2009. It was soon discovered that there was a niche market for a well priced heavy duty trailing grader, something which is unlikely to be imported from

Asia. The machine weighs 2 tons and is ideal for maintaining roads without the costs/problems of buying a secondhand road grader. With hydraulic angle, tilt and wheel lift, track maintenance has never been so easy and affordable. For more information on this product, go to www. johnberendsimplements.com.au or contact John Berends Implements on (03) 9791 2494.

Calciprill䉸 granulated lime

Since Calciprill’s launch three years ago, more and more farmers have found out how economical, effective and easy to use Calciprill® granulated lime is. Calciprill® is a 2-6mm granule manufactured from high quality limestone in Bathurst NSW. 95% of Calciprill’s particles measure less than 75 microns, finer than any aglime available. In Australia, aglime has generally been applied at up to 2.5 tonnes/hectare every 5 to 7 years. This is because agricultural lime is a fine powder and is difficult to spread at low rates. The long length of time between applications means the soil slowly acidifies as produce is removed and nitrogenous fertilisers are applied. Hand in hand with acidification is a slow decline in the soil’s productivity until a high rate of aglime is reapplied again.

Large swings in calcium and pH levels also mean soil nutrients are more difficult to balance. The advent of Calciprill means balanced soils can now be regularly maintained with a much lower rate of lime, preserving a far friendlier environment for plants to thrive in. Being a granule, growers can apply the product themselves using any spreader designed for granular fertiliser and at any time suitable. Specialist machinery is not required and there is far less dust generated in the process. The ability to band Calciprill on row and tree crops also contributes to large cost savings. To aid in crop establishment Calciprill is being proven successful when direct drilled with cereal and pasture seed. Calciprill now allows farmers Australia-wide to control how and when their country is limed and with great results.

The courage and determination of owner builders who tackle challenging projects single-handed is admirable. Brendon of Lilydale, Victoria, built Paal Kit Homes’ large Castlereagh design on a deeply sloping block and made a magnificent job of it. As well, he saved at least a quarter of a million dollars by tackling as much as possible of the work himself. The commanding outlook was achieved by positioning the house and deck on 88 steel piers that were nearly three metres high at the deck edge. Fascinated by the engineering side of the project and never daunted by challenges, Brendon taught himself new skills, including pier placement and support for the elevated timber flooring. He combined his long-service and annual leave to make a strong start on the house, later employing a professional plasterer to save time.

He used the mandatory tradespeople for roofing, plumbing and electricals. While admitting that his 420 square metre home, including a double-garage and deck, was ambitious, he said, “It was also straightforward in a lot of respects. I’m very happy with the result. It’s certainly an achievement.” A building surveyor, who inspected the construction at various stages, said, “I’ve been in the game for 40 years, and I haven’t seen it done as well as you have.” Brendon confesses: “Our neighbours initially felt sorry for me, out there every day in rain or hail or sunshine, but they now take their hats off.” You too can become an owner builder and save big money building the Paal way.

farmers is still tough and their production costs are continually rising. However, it has been 5 plus years of hard work, saving and paying off debts that has put some farmers in a position to expand. Alex Scott Leongatha are finding that it is mainly dairy farmers that are expanding. A large portion of farmers both beef and dairy in the area are pushing retirement age, especially

with the baby boomer era being upon us. Over the past 12 months there have been a lot of discussions with clients about listing their properties now and capitalising on the current demand. Prices for properties are reaching fair market values. The days of properties selling high above their market value are over. Whilst there is demand from capable buyers, sellers

are being educated in the realisation that capable buyers are also well informed. The buyers are well versed on the values of land and infrastructure value. Whilst they are prepared to pay a good price to secure the property in the location they are seeking out, they are also fortunate to have supply and choice. Over the coming 12 months a good supply of rural land will be coming on the market. It is getting increasingly more difficult for the next generation to get the funds to buy the family farm, so that will lead to a steady flow of supply. Demand is always high in South Gippsland for properties that are priced realistically. It is obviously dry now and in desperate need for rain and our farmers are doing it tough! However, they are a resilient bunch! South Gippsland is one of the best farming districts in Australia and with good farming practices and some luck with the water falling out of the sky, hopefully the year to come will more productive for farmers in general.

Recycle your empty,clean chem ical containers with drumMUSTER

F00735

drumMUSTER and ChemClear are Australia’s leading stewardship programs, with 27 million containers recycled and 523 tonnes of chemical destructed since the programs commenced in the late 90s and early 2000s respectively. To ensure good stewardship a majority of agvet chemical manufacturers have signed up to give their customers a return pathway for the appropriate recycling of containers and any residual chemical. Thousands of chemical users have in turn delivered their containers and obsolete chemical through the programs for safe environmental recycling and disposal. Lisa Nixon, National Program Manager for ChemClear, is happy with the results but says there is still room for improvement. There are many chemical users who have not participated in the recycling and

disposal movement, instead stockpiling containers and chemical or, in isolated cases, disposing of them illegally. With the continued demand for agvet chemical in the market, our programs remain an important disposal choice. Sometimes it just takes a little longer for everyone to get on board, and new participants are always welcome. drumMUSTER has had ongoing success, consistently collecting approx. 2 million drums annually over the past seven years. ChemClear is collecting through Western Australia in June. You can register for the service on 1800 008 182 or visit www.chemclear.com.au drumMUSTER has over eight hundred permanent collection locations across Australia.

Enduro Tags

Enduro Tags will have on display, and are taking purchase orders, for their unique high retention and highly visible livestock tags and their NLIS cattle electronic tags and NLIS sheep tags.

The Enduro NLIS cattle tag has extremely high retention with a 99.8 per cent retention record on our trial farms to date including their dairy and two southern beef properties. While conventional cattle tags relied on one central anchor point with a flange on the back of the ear, this new generation design ensures the surface area at the back of the ear is less likely to snag with fences and scrub and is better anchored in place with the two prongs and locks. Dr Steinfort said dairy, beef and sheep producers are welcome to visit their site no C7 at Farm World and sample the technology. Samples are available so dairy farmers can check out their high electronic read performance from which they can expect excellent retention. Our Enduro cattle RFID tags are NLIS registered and although not subsidised as yet by the Victorian Goverment, they are cost effective when applied to your replacement heifers as they are designed for long term retention and electronic functionality. “They can also see our range of management tags and dairy and beef high tags, also being highly visible with excellent field retention. “Producers are looking for a tag they can apply to a calf’s ear at marking and be confident in the knowledge

Enduro Tags will have these unique, high retention, highly visible livestock tags on display at Farm World. it will still be there when the animal is eventually sold,” he said. Enduro Tags are solely Australian owned and manufactured.

More production - uniform coverage, no gaps, less weeds. Level, harrow, sow and roll in one fast pass to pasture renovate or total resow. The natural way for pasture seed to germinate is near the surface, in firm contact with the soil. Bury the seed, it dies. Sowing in lines or rows doesn’t make any sense either, as the empty spaces between the rows will allow weeds to grow with obvious loss of production. The 4 in 1 Seeder for fast pasture establishment and earlier production. This machine is designed for sowing pastures into either worked ground or more importantly into existing pastures, either to rejuvenate or totally re-sow without the need to cultivate. The versatile Fix 4 in 1 Seeder effectively sows from rough rocky hill country to river flats and is excellent for both pasture management and renovation as it is for sowing summer fodder crops such as lucerne, brassicas, millet etc. into cultivated soil. Available in a full 2m and 3m working width, and for the really large operators, 2x2m coupled for 4m coverage. The WIX and EXAKTOR Seed Boxes are ground-driven through cassettes with several ratios and the seed drops on to a metal deflector plate which fans out the seed to give an even distribution over the entire paddock. The Exaktor and new WIX seed-boxes handle seeds from clovers to peas, pasture grasses to cereals. Both of these boxes are also available as separate items

Bonino - Cut and carry machine

Greg Allan Farm Machinery is the Australian importer of the Bonino range of machines. The zero-grazer is a new machine to this part of the world but has been popular in many places in Europe. The idea behind these machines is to cut fresh grass for the cattle to eat straight away. The product is clean and free of debris and dirt because directly after cutting the produce is lifted up and into the wagon. The largest machine available to Australia at this time has the capacity to hold 35 cubic metres of material, with a low power requirement, running from only a 80/100HP tractor. The self-loading cutter wagons are manufactured in various models and sizes to meet the requirements of both intensive dairy and beef farming, to occasional green crop feeding for goats and sheep. The product can be chopped on the way into the wagon and also on the way out through the rear dosage rollers. All of the machine’s movements can be controlled from the cabin using a small switch panel. There is an onboard hydraulic system which

means a basic tractor can take care of operation. Forage can be discharged directly into feeding troughs by means of a side conveyor belt, or by opening the rear door left in a pile to move into a mixer wagon. Currently Greg Allan has sold machines to carmers working in the South West of Victoria (Timboon), Northern Victoria (Nanneella), Gippsland Victoria and the latest in Queensland our from Rockhampton. All used in different conditions and crops. The farmers in Victoria cut crops ranging from shaftal, ryegrass, lucerne and sorghum with the machine to direct feed to the cows on a cement feedpad. The machine allows forage to be brought back to the animals, saving the animals having to walk long distances..

IRRIGATORS

The Reeve Floating Pontoon provides the link between collecting animal effluent from your dairy or piggery (or even an abattoir) and applying this free and valuable fertiliser onto farm pasture. The heavy duty moulded polyethylene pontoon, complete with a Reeve Vertical Cantilever Pump, floats in your pond or lagoon and since it is always primed is ready at the flick of a switch to recycle waste water or to de-sludge a pond and efficiently pump away effluent. The 2.5 metre long x 1.5 metre wide pontoon comes complete with a fully hot dipped galvanised steel frame designed for mounting the Reeve effluent pump, although other pumps weighing up to about 230 kg can also easily be fitted. The pontoon is designed to be tethered by up to four lines to allow simple positioning anywhere on a pond surface. When used for pumping water or effluent onto pasture the Reeve Travelling Irrigator or the Manurain Big Gun Sprinkler completes this profitable and highly efficient recycling system. The inherent stability of the Reeve pontoon allows for routine pump inspection,

Massey Ferguson, a worldwide brand of AGCO (NYSE: AGCO) has released the new MF 7700 series tractors which build on the highly successful and award winning MF 7600 series. The new range provides an outstanding choice of highly productive, straightforward and dependable tractors. A total of 8 models offer maximum powers of 140hp to 255hp, providing a choice of three transmissions and two levels of specification. Engine Power Management (EPM), which provides up to 25hp extra power, is standard on all models taking maximum power to 280hp on the flagship MF 7726 model. “The MF 7700 series continues Massey Ferguson’s drive to develop dependable, straightforward, low maintenance tractors that provide efficiencies across all farming operations,” said Michael Partridge, General Marketing Manager – Tractors. These new tractors benefit from the excellent pedigree established by the MF 7600 series which won Machine of the Year, Tractor of the Year Golden Design Award as well as gold medals and numerous accolades across Europe. It has also established a proven track record and gained strong respect from customers,” he added. Massey Ferguson has further refined this winning design and added new features that boost comfort and control, leading to even greater performance and productivity to further reduce overall ownership costs. MF 7700 series features ● Latest technology six cylinder, 6.6 litre and 7.4 litre AGCO POWER engine, with Engine Power Management (EPM) generating 25hp extra power on all models ● Unrivalled choice of Dyna-4, Dyna-6 semi-powershift or Dyna-VT continuously variable transmission (depending on model) ● Electronic PTO speed selection on all Efficient and Exclusive models ● High capacity – permissible gross vehicle weight increased by 12% allowing MF 7700 series to carry larger loads and pull heavier trailers ● New Massey Ferguson designed and built, maintenancefree front axle suspension offers high comfort ● AGCOMMAND and latest auto-guide 3000 ready ● Available in Essential and Efficient specifications to match all owners’ specific tasks and budgets ● Higher hydraulic capacity and up to eight spool valves for excellent implement control Straightforward economic power In 2008, Massey Ferguson was the first tractor manufacturer to introduce Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), recognised as the most straightforward, reliable and economic method of achieving increasingly strict emission regulations. The MF 7700 series tractors continue to be powered by six cylinder, AGCO POWER 6.6 litre and 7.4 litre engines, equipped with the latest SCR technology, which remains maintenance free. There is no Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF).

Larger catalysers remove more pollutants, but remain contained neatly within the same-sized enclosure, retaining the same excellent forward visibility. Engine Power Management (EPM) provides up to an extra 25hp to improve efficiency and performance on the road and in the field. This is standard on all models, including those equipped with DynaVT transmission. The engines feature a new Engine Control Unit (ECU), with higher fuel injection pressure, an electronically controlled wastegate turbocharger and a new throttle valve. Unrivalled transmission choice The MF 7700 series offers an unrivalled choice of transmissions which are perfectly matched to the engines and transmit more power to the wheels for maximum output. The slick, easy to use Dyna-VT is available across the range from the MF 7715 upwards. Dyna-VT provides stepless speed changes and allows operators to select any combination of engine speed and forward speed to optimise output and the work quality. Engine revs can be set for the precise combination of power and torque required for the best work quality, resulting in optimum fuel economy and lower noise. While offering the ultimate in sophisticated transmission operation, the Dyna-VT retains the familiar power control lever on the left of the dashboard, under the steering wheel, which is a feature on all tractors, regardless of transmission. The rugged and well proven Dyna-6 transmission provides clutchless operation of six speeds in four ranges providing a total of 24 forward and 24 reverse speeds. Economy is further improved by the Super Eco Dyna-6 transmission for the MF 7720 to MF 7726 models, which provides 40km/hr achieved at a remarkably low 1,500 engine rpm. The highly efficient Dyna-4 transmission is standard on the MF 7714 and an option on the MF 7715 tractors, offering 16 forward and 16 reverse speeds with four Dynashift (powershift) speeds in four ranges, allowing road speeds of 40km/hr to be reached at an economical 1,880rpm. Electro-hydraulic control also provides clutchless range changes. AutoDrive is a performance enhancing option on Dyna-4 and Dyna-6 and provides automatic changing of the six steps in fieldwork, as well as the ranges when in transport. Using the SIS screen, operators can set the engine speed at which Autodrive will automatically change gear and with the new ‘auto’ setting the transmission will also automatically select the most appropriate gear. All models with Dyna-VT transmissions are equipped with a four-speed PTO system providing 540, 540E, 1,000 and 1,000E speeds. A brake-activated neutral feature is standard on all the transmissions, simultaneously operating the clutch as the brake is pressed – easing the load on the operator, while increasing efficiency and convenience, particularly in loader operations.

Assumption College Kilmore

Pump out waste with Dumac Dumac Distributors P /L a 100% Australian owned and operated company, manufacturing and selling our own brand of waste disposal pumps since 1963. We manufacture with a maximum of Australian made materials. The first model was the “Filter-Cut” pump which is still manufactured and has been updated over the years but with the important key features retained in today’s model. Originally it was a horizontal unit with the body cast into the pit wall and the motor mounted above the pit, which had problems. These were overcome by our first vertical column waste pump, the first in Australia and possibly the world for this application. The “Filter-Cut” pump worked well, but like all other pumps it was subject to excessive wear. A decision was made to go in a different direction with the wet end, it would not have the cutting action and agitation of the “Filter-Cut” but be tough enough to handle abrasive and large solids. The “Ruffy” pump model was released September 1974 with great success and did so well it still retains the main features of the original and has only had 2 modifications in that time and they were both done within the first year after its release. The “Filter-Cut” pump comes in 2 outlet sizes, 11/2” and 2” BSP and in column lengths to suit pit depths from 2’6” (760mm) to 12’ (4.57m) all have an external agitator blade that is attached to a 75mm extended impeller nut which are both made from case hardened steel. This, together with replaceable hardened steel tips fitted to the faces of the impellor vanes and a hardened steel perforated plate with a clearance of approximately .020”, combine to agitate and cut up solids; it is a true cutting action not just bashing. The 11/2” model can have motors from 2Hp – 7.5Hp (1.5kW - 5.5kW) with a maximum of 28m shut off head or 680l/min open discharge. The 2” model can have motors from 5.5Hp – 25Hp (4kW – 18.5kW) with a maximum of

73m shut off head or 1450l/min open discharge. The “Ruffy” pump at present has a 2” BSP outlet with column lengths to suit pit depths from 2’6” (760mm) to 6’ (1.83m), it has a large open steel impellor with a heavy walled cast iron casing. Suction is unique, in that it is from above the casing and when in operation there is negative pressure in the column and therefore does not require any seals. Standard operation for the “Ruffy” is direct coupled with a 3Hp (2.2kW) 1440 rpm motor, depending on the distance or liquid being pumped may need a 4Hp (3kW) motor, where higher output is required it can be belt driven with a 5.5Hp – 7.5Hp (4kW – 5.5kW) motor, also becoming popular is in 3phase operation, it is direct coupled with the larger Hp and a variable speed drive. The output is from 24m – 35m shut off head or from 980l/min – 1200/min open discharge. The “Filter – Cut” range of pumps are most suitable where there are softer solids in suspension, heavy sediment or high heads. The most common applications are in Piggeries, Abattoirs, Wineries and food processing plants or similar operations. The “Ruffy” range of pumps are most suitable where there are hard or abrasive solids or very high volumes over shorter distances with low power requirements and minimal maintenance. The most common applications are in Dairies, Abattoirs, Wineries and in recent years some mining applications. None of the pumps will pump plastic bags or bailing twine, but at the same time under normal circumstances they will not damage the pumps and both the “Filter – Cut” and “Ruffy” pumps can be run dry without damage. Dumac Pumps are also agents for the Teco range of electric motors and variable speed drives and the Ebara range of pumps which have everything from domestic systems, borehole, submersibles and mining pumps.

High quality steel tanks you can rely on

David Mortimer, director of Tankworks Australia.

Tankworks tanks are constructed from Z450 galvanised walls incorporating heavy duty geo-fabric at the base, and with seven layer heavy duty polypropylene liners. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how cost effective these high quality tanks are. Select from 24,000 to 370,000 litre capacities Choose your own colour from our range Full on-farm installation service 20 year construction and anti-corrosion warranty

High quality steel tanks come with a bonus Preparing an overall plan for your rainwater harvesting and water storage is critical according to David Mortimer, director of Tankworks, who are the largest manufacturer of steel water tanks in the country. Taking the time to calculate the catchment area, rainfall rates and proposed usage such as stock watering, irrigation, fire-fighting and household supply means that the important decisions on tank size and tank configuration can be confidently made based on all the relevant information. “I have seen many customers think biggest is best but not realising with the given catchment it will rarely fill or, on the flip side, they have purchased an undersized tank and then have needed to add additional tanks later on, which ends up being a more expensive exercise”, says David Mortimer. Tankworks Australia has been manufacturing long-lasting steel rainwater tanks since 1934 and is experienced in providing advice and support. With local representation and factories in each state on the east coast Tankworks is well set up with expanded

delivery capabilities to offer a wide range of products to dairy farmers. “The water tank game is very competitive and it’s tempting to cut out features and options to have a great entry level price. However we decided early on to keep important features in the tank such as true Z450 galvanised walls and heavy duty geofabric to supply a product we are proud of and know will stand the test of time. Many customers are seeing this value and making an educated decision”, explained Mr Mortimer. The Tankworks tanks come in capacities from 24,000 to 370,000 litres in a wide range of colours, and with seven layer heavy duty polypropylene liners. Farmers can fully customise their tank with additional outlets, inlets and overflows as required. Each tank is fully installed on-farm by local qualified staff.

A system of excellence to beneficially remove sewerage and organic waste from the environment Down on the sunny Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, is a company with a secret. A&A Worm Farm Waste Systems has the key to the World’s Best Worm Driven Sewage and Organic Waste Conversion System. As we become conscious of the damage we have done to our planet, it’s clear that we must adopt practices in our daily living which lessen the impact of our lifestyle on the environment. This can be without any inconvenience and at very little cost to which you attain some big bonuses. All this can be achieved through worms, would you believe? Worms through the good people at A&A Worm Farm Waste System. Here’s how it works, the system is simplicity itself.

All that happens is that the contents of the toilet, the water from the shower, bath, dishwasher, clothes washer are piped directly to a colony of active compost worms. The A&A system then constantly introduces fresh air into the worm driven processing tank. This design feature keeps the system aerobic (totally different to a septic tank, which is anaerobic), therefore the system has no smell. The worms then turn the solid matter in the sewage with the flush water, shower, washing machine etc, to vermicast. Vermicast is a solution of suspended solid which is broken down into extremely minute particles. It is black and rich in carbon. This is then discharged into the subsurface soil

where it will; - Naturally fertilise the soil - Naturally water and fertilise your garden - Over-time transforms the top layer of soil into an incredible rich, dark coloured growing medium The worms, who have a voracious appetite eating at least half their weight daily, can consume and kill harmful bacteria such as e-coli, salmonella and enteric virus in the sewage, making it safe to use. If you have an A&A Worm Farm Waste system, all your organic wastes, weeds from the garden, scraps from the kitchen etc - the organic waste which your Council collects - go straight into the processing chamber never to be seen again and cost you and the Council nothing. As of December 2015, there

are more than 2000 families in Australia with a trouble-free worm driven sewage system from A&A Worm Farm, all doing their bit to repair our environment and make it safe for our children. The A&A Worm Farm Waste System is the World’s Best Practice, Fit, Flush and Forget sewage system. Operational cost, fitted up to a four bedroom family home is around $20 per year, unless you include a small solar panel, in which case, it costs nothing and is all benefit. Installation is about the same as any other system. To find out more, phone A&A Worm Farm Waste Systems on (03) 5979 1877, or visit them at Farm World. They’ll look after you!

Continued from page 49. Hydraulic power and control MF 7700 series tractors feature a new loadsensing, closed-centre pump, which delivers 190 litres/min on Dyna-VT tractors, while Dyna-6 models provide 110 litres/min as standard with the option of 150 litres/min. All load-sensing models have decompression levers on the spool valves for easy coupler connection and removal. Up to five rear spool valves can be specified. When a front linkage is specified additional valves are fitted - one for the front linkage and one or two for front couplers. New dependable front axle suspension Massey Ferguson has designed and built a new front axle suspension system specifically for the MF 7700 series to further boost operator comfort as well as increase dependability. Completely maintenance free, the suspension employs double acting rams, which provide 30% more travel than previous designs. The rams are attached directly to the axle and the front axle support. This straightforward set-up, without any complex linkages, combines comfort with reliable operation. At the same time it also increases maneuverability. Up front there are also new mono blocks providing 900kg or 1,500kg of ballast. These compact blocks restrain the overall tractor length and also offer the facility to fit further wafer weights. Even more cab comfort and control Operators will also appreciate the new, clear dashboard. The new colour display provides better visibility during the day and at night, making it easier to use the SIS – Set Up and Information Screen. All Efficient models are equipped with the

easy to use Command Control Armrest, which operates a range of frequently used functions. The Essential versions have a longer console which houses the controls. The multi-function joystick, which is an option on all models, provides press button shuttle control, as well as operating the hydraulic spools and/or a loader. It can also be used to change forward speeds and direction. To ease turning on the headland, Speedsteer reduces the number of steering wheel revolutions needed to turn the wheels from lock-to-lock. All the MF 7700 series come with the option of factory-fitted wiring ready to connect up the latest Auto-Guide 3000 automatic steering and AGCOMMAND systems. The recently introduced ‘go mode’ on Auto-Guide 3000 provides a fast set-up and enables users to choose between four steering paths – A-B line, A+ heading, centre pivot and curved lines. AGCOMMAND telemetry improves fleet management, machine monitoring and security while simplifying record keeping and job reports. No software is required because it’s accessed through a secure, mobile friendly webpage. Small details make a big difference The MF 7700 series is packed with small details that make big differences for operators, with the possibility to set the flashing beacon lights to come on automatically when the tractor is on the road and is fitted with automatic sensor lights to get you to your door after a long day. When the tractor is finally parked up for the night, owners can protect their investment with the option of a unique key - simple, cost effective crime prevention. For more information on the new MF7700 series tractors, contact your local dealer or www.masseyferguson. com.au

Women dairy leaders share their experience at Farm World The significant role that women play within the dairy industry will be a highlight of the “Women in Agriculture luncheon’ to be held at Farm World 2016, at Lardner Park, Warragul, on Thursday April 7. Three inspirational women who have played noteworthy roles in the industry will share their stories and insights with the audience. Janet Moxey has seen Moxey Farms, at Gooloogong in NSW, grow from humble conditions to currently milk 3800 cows and, through a joint venture with Perich Farms, Freedom Foods and the New Hope Group are aiming to increase their numbers to 5000 cows. Along with her family and partners, Moxey Farms employs over 100 people. Following her husband Paul’s death in 2001, Janet has taken an active role in agri-politics including being a board member of Australian Dairy Farmers and the first female vice-president of the NSW Farmers Association. Dr Sinead De Gooyer juggles family, dairy farming and general practice, as well as being a director of GippsDairy and the Gippsland Primary Health Network. Along with husband Evan and their three children, she operates a share farming operation at Korumburra. Sinead is a general practitioner at Leongatha Healthcare, focussing

on mental and adolescent health. Kelly Ward is Dairy Australia’s industry promotions manager. She is a strategic communications specialist with a special interest in implementing social marketing campaigns to prompt b2ehavioural change. Being responsible for the communications to support the LEGENDAIRY campaign rollout, Kelly will detail the LEGENDAIRY campaign and the amazing women involved in the dairy industry. The function follows the ongoing success of ‘Ladies Day – Women in Agriculture’ and, linking in with the field days’ dairy theme, ‘Dairy - An Industry on the move’, the Women in Agriculture luncheon is supported by LEGENDAIRY and Farm World Strategic Partners; the Commonwealth Bank, Evans Petroleum BP and the Baw Baw Shire Council. Last year 300 people were delighted with the revelations at the luncheon presentations. Previous speakers have included Margaret Jackson, Sue Pieters-Hawke and Dame Quentin Bryce. The luncheon is scheduled to commence at 12.00 noon and is planned to finish at 2.00pm. The $40 cost per head will include entry into Farm World, a light lunch, beer and soft drink.

No more getting out of your tractor, truck, ute or quad to open and close a gate especially in hilly country. A click of the remote control, the gate opens and away you go. People with a horse and cart had an advantage over us in our modern motor vehicles at a closed gate. A person would dismount from the cart and open the gate, then with a click of his or her tongue the horse and cart would pass through and stop. They would then get back in and move on – we can’t do that in the Ute. Unless

Retirement Communities Australia (RCA) welcomed the first residents of Main Street Village, Pakenham in December. Located literally in Main Street, this boutique style village offers easy access to local shops and the train station on foot, with medical services and hospitals just down the road, and a plethora of local attractions in the wider area. Fountain Gate Shopping Centre is just 20 minutes away, and Melbourne CBD is less than an hour via the freeway or train. With metropolitan Melbourne to the west and rural Gippsland to the east, cool mountains to the north and the coast to the south, living in Pakenham offers the best of all worlds. A day at the beach, a drive through the majestic forests of the Dandenongs, or a picnic and a day trip through Gippsland's rolling landscape are all within an hour’s drive. For those who enjoy the good things in life, gorgeous local produce

from the Farmers Markets or straight from the farm gate is readily available. Main Street Village is being built on the former Pakenham Consolidated School site. The iconic Algerian oak tree that graces the entrance was planted by a former pupil at the school in 1901 to commemorate Federation. The tree is protected through its heritage status and will be a beautiful landmark at the entrance of the boutique style village. Main Street Village will provide a boutique living environment, with just 129 independent living villas and a choice of four different floor plans. All villas have 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a study, a double lock-up garage and range in size.

includes three new midrange tractor models: the M7131, M7151 and M7171, in the 130 to 170 engine horsepower range. The new line of workhorse tractor models features powerful performance, easy operation, technological advances, sophisticated styling, and best-in-class base weight, making it a top choice for row-crop, commercial livestock and hay market customers. “Kubota is always looking forward, increasing our competitive know-how, and expanding our product offerings to meet the demands of our current and prospective customer base,” said Malcolm Owens, General Manager Marketing and Sales. “With the M7-1 Series, we are bringing more than 40 years of engineering prowess to the field with a built from the ground up machine, designed with intuitive technology that makes precision farming possible for Kubota customers.”

Exceptionally Clean, Uncompromisingly Powerful Kubota Diesel Engines Kubota’s M7-1 Series boasts a powerful V6108 Kubota turbo charged diesel engine, the very latest in clean air engine technology, with an innovative Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) that transforms harmful exhaust gases into water vapour and nitrogen. The Common Rail System (CRS) on the M7-1 Series electronically controls the timing and amount of high-pressure injected fuel in stages for optimal combustion, which results in greater efficiency, better fuel economy and less engine noise. Additionally, with Kubota’s Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) muffler and an Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system, the M7-1 Series exceeds Tier 4 final emissions regulations. “Our engineers constantly strive to lower emissions and improve fuel efficiency,” said Owens. “For the M7-1 Series, we created an exceptionally clean-running, yet uncompromisingly powerful midrange agricultural tractor.” Available on the M7131, M7151 and M7171 Premium models, is the all new Closed Center Load Sensing hydraulic system and 110” bar axles, a first for Kubota. The line will feature a 24 x 24 speed semi-powershift transmission or the Kubota Variable Transmission (KVT) that virtually provides an infinite number of forward and reverse speeds, allowing operators to work at the opti-

mal speed for a wide variety of jobs. Highly responsive and reliable, the KVT transmission features dynamic braking, or engine-assisted deceleration, to help maintain control and a constant traveling speed while on descending slopes. Additionally, the M7-1 Series features optional front suspension to help ensure stable and precise operation, giving the tractor the ability to keep power to the ground and maintain proper traction during changing soil and terrain conditions. Front suspension helps realise fuel savings, increases productivity and efficiency, and minimizes wear and tear on the tractor. Expertly Engineered for Versatility Kubota engineered the new M7-1 Series to be highly versatile, allowing the operator to easily switch between jobs and functions. The Kubota M7-1 Series offers the LM2605 mechanical self-leveling front end loader. The LM2605 provides best-inclass lifting performance and features a Kubota-first Z-Bar self-leveling linkage to ensure a clear view over the top of the loader boom. An operator can quickly and simultaneously attach and detach all six hydraulic hoses using Kubota’s quick coupler, making installing or uninstalling the front end loader a snap. A standard third function valve allows operators to work with a grapple bucket and other hydraulically controlled

attachments, and the valve is controlled by a single switch conveniently located on the joystick grip. Kubota’s 4-speed live-independent PTO, ranging from 102 to 142 horsepower, gives operators the ability to utilize a wide range of rear mounted implements, making the M7-1 Series adaptable enough to handle any farm job. The independent PTO can be engaged and disengaged without stopping the tractor, using a single control switch with automatic modulation for smooth engagement. The M7 also offers optional front PTO, allowing two PTO implements to be running at the same time for even greater versatility and productivity. Raising the Standard for Precision and Control Precision farming is now possible for Kubota customers with the M7-1 Premium models, from its all-in-one ISOBUS management system with auto guidance to its easy-to-use, touchscreen performance monitor. The premium tractor series is designed to streamline and enhance operations with the all new arm rest control centre. Providing the convenience of fully-automated operations, the M7-1 Series’ headland management system works with implements to provide customizable programs, and make operation a breeze with fingertip control.

Fire up your outdoor area with an Aussie Heatwave Andrew and Liz of Aussie Heatwave Fireplaces were the first to introduce Australians to the joy of outdoor fireplaces with ceramic Mexican chimineas over 10 years ago. Having built their business on premium quality ceramic Chimineas, which they still import and sell, they have now gone one better by developing and manu-

facturing the all-Australian “Aussie Heatwave” Chiminea. Made in rural Victoria from the best quality cast iron, the Aussie Heatwave is premium quality single piece casting. There are no joins or welds, moving parts, air vents - and no grates either, as are commonly found with inferior Asian copies.

“The real benefits are that they radiate much more heat over a wider area, are virtually indestructible, will last a lifetime and beyond. They are totally pyromaniac proof” says Andrew. “They look visually stunning in any outdoor setting and are the only chiminea that’s designed for safe use on timber decks as the legs and

base don’t get hot. The quality is unsurpassed and they come with a 20 year guarantee.” The Aussie Heatwave also has an optional barbecue and pizza oven attachment, which can be simply placed on top of the chimney of any Aussie Heatwave to easily convert into a fabulous wood fired barbecue/oven.

It barbecues, roasts and cooks pizzas to perfection and is guaranteed to satisfy the expectations of all barbeque lovers. Now with the cooking attachments it provides a cost effective and easy way to have a wood fired pizza oven. Being wood fired is one of the most environmentally friendly forms of heating as well as being very cost efficient. Wood being a renewable source of energy and carbon neutral, makes it much better than using gas or electric outdoor heaters as they use non-renewable fos-

sil fuels and are more expensive to run. Adding to it's environmentally friendly appeal is also the fact that we use recycled materials, in the form of old cast iron water main pipes from country Victoria which we melt down and re-cast as the Aussie Heatwave Chimineas. The Aussie Heatwave is fast becoming a new Aussie icon. It’s a premium quality product that will last a lifetime and beyond, is hasslefree, delivers more heat, looks sensational and has no operational ‘rules’ as far as fire size, type of fuel, curing,

or covering out of the weather etc. In addition to the Chimineas, Aussie Heatwave Fireplaces now also stock a large range of designer fire pits. These are great as they are multi-functional cast iron bowls in numerous shapes and sizes that can be used as a fire pit in the cooler months and as a planter, herb garden or water feature in the summer months. Come see Andrew and Liz at Farm World on site 107, or check out their website on www.aussieheatwave. com.au

little or no sunshine. This amount of battery power will provide 500-600 gate openings/closings without charging, on a normal farm gate. The gate opener is available as Solar Powered that requires no electrical power at the gate, low voltage that is cabled from a nearby power outlet (no electrician required), or 240volt system which does require power to be cabled to the gate. All systems have battery backup when there is no sunlight (for solar) or loss of electrical power such as a blackout (for 240volt or low voltage). Visitor buttons can be added to the gate system, which allows for visitors who do not have a remote control transmitter. These visitor buttons can be hard wired back to the control box, or can be wireless pushbuttons which do not require cabling (no trenches to be dug). For security, a wireless keypad can be installed, which requires a PIN number to gain entry. Additional options can be included, like photo electric sensors to stop the gate closing on slower vehicles, such as large trucks or farm machinery, in ground vehicle loops to open the gate when a vehicle drives over the loop and remote controlled gate lock so that all visitor entry buttons can be disabled from your vehicle as you leave the property or retire at night. Other options also include remote controls to control your gate from up to 2km or alarms to warn the gate is opening up to 2km away. The gate controller kits come as an easy to install DIY kit which is always supported by the team during and after installation. See them at Farm World Site CB113.

New ZX & TX Wagons The new ZX Wagon series is the most powerful silage wagon in the world! The loading and unloading speed have increased immensely. This is due to the belt driven rotor which includes a planetary drive gearbox hidden inside the rotor. This results in a stronger drive and an increased pick up and knife bank width. The wide rotor has 46 knives. The front wall position is hydraulically regulated depending on load. All new wagons can be equipped with Krone’s unique ‘SpeedSharp’ system which uses on board sharpening discs to sharpen the cutting blades.

Small hole makes big difference in local dairies If there is one great truism in dairy farming, it would be that the more comfortable the cows are during milking, the higher the milk production. It is also true that if crosscontamination can be reduced during the milking process, there is less chance of mastitis spreading from quarter to quarter. Finally, we have a solution for dairy farmers that addresses both of these issues – Mouthpiece Vented (MV) Triangular Liners inserted in a light weight industrial strength plastic shell from Milkrite UK. For many cows, the milking experience isn’t so relaxing! Sensitive or damaged teats can be caused by the combination of poor system vacuum, heavy shells and round milking liners, which collapse on two sides creating a “pinch point” at the end of the teat during milking. Many farmers have tried different shaped liners, liner vents and lightweight shells with mixed results. However, for over 10 years Milkrite have sold their award winning triangular liner and moulded triangular shell combination – delivering much gentler milking of the teat as pressure is distributed more evenly from three sides without pinching! By adding a small vent to the mouthpiece (top of the liner) three years ago, Milkrite now have the only liner in the world with this technology and it’s fast becoming one of the best liners for milking cows on the market.

The Milkrite triangular shell and liner range is easy to install and fits the majority of claws currently in use. However, two key changes are required; the first involves closing off the air admission hole in the claw and the second, having a qualified technician fine tune the pulsation settings for optimum performance. Now that the air is introduced above the milk, it is taken away more quickly with no “Splashback” – significantly reducing cross contamination. Brendan McGarth (Daviesway Technical Sales Manager – Gippsland) who has been in the dairy industry for over 20 years commented; “Have a look when you take the cups off at your next milking, if the teats are a blue/redish colour then you have “congestion issues,” the MV triangular liner and shell combination is proven to improve congestion problems.” Gippsland farmers including Andrew Edey, (12 unit swing over - Maffra), Wilco Droppet (30 unit Double up - Sale), Andrew Gaul (40 unit Rotary – Warragul), Craig Allot (20 unit Swing over Toora), Clare Porter (18 unit Swing over – Yarram), Bert Vanboxtel (40 unit Rotary – Catani), Wijbren Boer (50 unit Rotary – Nar Nar Goon)… are just some of 130 farmers Australia wide using MV Triangular Liners. This group of farmers all experienced some improvements; better milk quality and milking speed, lower SSCs, reduction in cup slips

and mastitis cases. However the number one comment was the improvement in teat condition after switching to MV Triangular liner. Brendan also commented that; “Daviesway sell many liner types, round, square, wide bore, narrow bore, all aimed at achieving the best possible fit to the cows teat. The MV Triangular liner and lightweight shell combination has given us a greater ability to tackle the tough issues that Gippsland farmers face every winter during milking and impact on their bottom line.” “When I talk to farmers who have problems on farm I’m able to source informa-

tion from the best and most experienced technicians and dealer network team in Australia – The Milkrite solution is by no means a silver bullet, but certainly a powerful addition to our solution toolbox.” Worldwide Milkrite are converting the very biggest and best dairy farms to MV Triangular liners and already has over 30 per cent of the US liner market. However, what makes this product so good is that it’s an affordable solution for all farmers striving for improved milking performance and animal health.

and the Trans-Pacific Partnerships Countries. The four FTAs will reduce barriers to trade and investment for Australia’s agricultural sector.” Gippsland’s dairy sector is the highest value agribusiness industry and one of Australia's leading dairy regions, producing around 30 per cent of Victoria's milk and 20 per cent of Australia's dairy production. “The China-Australia Free Trade Agreement will underpin the future of our local dairy industry, which has been competing with New Zealand at a significant disadvantage,” Mr Chester said. “The China-Australia FTA paves the way for Australian milk products to secure a foothold in the world’s largest and fastest growing dairy market.” Mr Chester said export earnings from farm commodities reached an estimated $43.6 billion in 2014–15. He said the price of young cattle, lamb and

wool had all increased significantly since 2013. Recently the government opened Expressions of Interest for its new $500 million National Water Infrastructure Development Fund. “I have hosted the Minister for Agriculture in Gippsland several times and he is well aware of the importance of the Macalister Irrigation District, which will be bidding for funding under this new program,” Mr Chester said. “On a broader scale, our Government recognises that agriculture is an economic pillar and we have provided more than $685 million in assistance and support for Australian farmers experiencing drought.” Member for Eastern Victoria Region, Melina Bath, said access to water was critical for Gippsland’s agricultural sector. “Next to people and land, water is the most important commodity in our state,” Ms Bath said.

“In terms of the dairy industry in my electorate of Eastern Victoria Region, we are having what could be called a green drought where the land in some cases looks good but there is no water content left in the ground and no major grass regrowth coming through for milk production. “Many farmers are struggling with stock and domestic supplies as dam reserves diminish. It is quite a serious situation.” Ms Bath said it was vital the Andrews Government supported the Macalister Irrigation District (MID) upgrade without any conditions to ensure water security. The former LiberalNational Coalition Government and the irrigators themselves developed phase 1A of the MID 2030 project with the Coalition delivering $16 million for its completion. Phase 1B requires $60 million over five years, with the Federal Government being asked for $20 million, irrigators another $20 million and the State $20 million for this phase. The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien said this project just needs to keep rolling along. “The next phase of the MID 2030 will enable increased water efficiency and therefore increased production and it is important that the Labor Government supports this as soon as possible. “I’m also working with the government and farmers on longer term solutions to water shortages in places such as Yanakie which have been very dry. There’s been a lot of stress placed on farmers this year, but most dairy farmers have been well-prepared, while high beef prices have buffered that industry from the worst of the season. “We’ll continue to fight to ensure our agricultural industries are well-placed for a strong future,” Mr O’Brien said. Member for Gippsland East, Tim Bull, said he was lobbying for a number of regional projects ahead of the May Budget. “One of the key projects I am hoping are funded is

the next stage of the Macalister Irrigation District (MID) upgrade,” he said. “It’s imperative the current government funds the MID upgrade, regardless of the Port of Melbourne lease sale,” Mr Bull said. Member for Morwell Russell Northe said Farm World was a fantastic opportunity for the National MPs to meet with Gippslanders and hear first-hand matters that are most important to them. “Now more than ever regional Victorians need people who understand country issues to stand up and fight for a better deal on their behalf,’’ Mr Northe said. “The agriculture industry is one of Gippsland’s biggest employers and it’s important that we continue to protect and grow jobs in our region.” Mr Northe said employment opportunities in the Latrobe Valley had been negatively impacted by Labor’s decision to axe the $15 million Latrobe Valley Industry and Infrastructure Fund which supported more than 40 local projects, created 1100 jobs and leveraged close to $100 million. “This was a fund that while in government the Coalition implemented to support country businesses and workers and we will continue to hold this Government accountable to ensure our local industry receives its fair share of Government support,” he said. Leader of the Nationals and Shadow Minister for Agriculture, Peter Walsh, encouraged Farm World patrons to visit the Nationals stand. “The Nationals will always champion Victoria’s food and fibre industries – they are the backbone of our economy and at the heart of our communities,” he said. “Come down to the Nationals’ stand at Farm World and have a chat to our team, we’d love to hear about your farm business and the issues that matter to you.”

We Start Where Others Stop!

Green Edge Contracting – we start where others stop Right now, Green Edge is Victorian based but is fielding calls from all over Australia. This company uses the amazing versatility of the ‘Menzi Muck’ and due to the machine’s design it can reach places that a human can’t walk. Slopes of up to 70 degrees are no problem as the Menzi pushes itself up a slope, big wheels first, then hydraulically activated claws dig into the surface and anchor the machine in place to enable it work. It looks precarious, however the machine is stable enough to reach out with its 2m boom extension and do what it has to do, even with an 850kg grapple attached. When on flat ground or undulating terrain, the Menzi can fold down and travel on all four wheels at maximum speed of 10km an hour which makes it very fast to get from one job to another. The way the machine works is very low impact; its two large tyres and the stabilising claws attached to the ground barely leave a mark, unlike a tracked machine that can tear up the environment. “Where a normal excavator has to cut in a flat spot to get where it has to get, or build a flat spot,” said the incredibly enthusiastic operator, “I don’t have to do that. I just clamber straight down the side of the hill or bank or whatever. I can step over drains or fences or other obstacles.” Green Edge Contracting is a member of the Municipal Works Officers Association (MWOA) and has valued clients such as Theiss, DEPI, West Gippsland Catchment Authority (WGCMA) and Vic Parks. Visit us at Farm World site No: 529-531 or call 0414 554 277 for further information.

Due to the machines design, it can safely work in area’s conventional machinery cannot access. It has the ability to climb vertical walls, work in 1.8M of water and safely work on slopes up to 70% grade. “Low impact and a friend to the environment by nature”

FARM WORL D SITE CB103

Jetmaster Heat & Glo Fill your house with the ambience of crackling wood and glowing embers this winter with Jetmaster Heat and Glo’s range of wood fires. The company, which has been operating in Australia for about 35 years, offers a wide variety of gas and wood heaters to suit the needs of any household. Sales director Ashley Stride said he expected the company’s wood fires to be popular among regional consumers at the Warragul Farm World. “If they’re off-the-grid, no availability of gas they (wood fires) are certainly the cheaper way to heat the home,” he said. Jetmaster Heat and Glo will have staff on hand to assist consumers with their search for the perfect wood heater to suit their needs. Mr Stride said the business would have about 15 models of wood fires from its three wood fire brands on display during the event. “Being the most efficient fireplace on the

market means you burn less wood and heat more area,” he said. “If you live on a farm and you’re chopping wood, it means you’re attending to the fire less. It’s good for your hip pocket but it is good for the environment because there’s less smoke and you’re burning less fuel.” Mr Stride said the business strived to achieve the best warranty and the most efficient product on the market with its clean burning fireplaces. The business stocks three brands of wood fires from the largest fireplace companies in the world, including Australia’s most efficient slow combustion wood fire, the EcoChoice from Quadra-Fire, which boasts up to 82 per cent efficiency. Mr Stride said the business had taken on knowledge and expertise from the brands it sells, including Kemlan, which has a range of modern Australian-made wood fires.
