Local Land Services workshops to help farmers make tough decisions

CENTRAL Tablelands Local Land Services is planning seven seasonal conditions workshops across the region to help landholders make informed decisions in tough times.

Black Springs will host one of the workshops on Wednesday, August 15 and Hill End another on Tuesday, August 21.

Senior officer Phil Cranney said LLS was hoping for a strong turnout at the workshops.

“We will have veterinarians, livestock and pasture experts there for producers who want advice on management decisions,” he said.

The workshops are part of Local Land Services efforts to make it easy for landholders to have face-to-face interaction with staff.

“These events make sure Local Land Services are having meaningful connections with landholders providing them with information and support from other stakeholders in specialist areas,” Mr Cranney said.

Since the beginning of the year, more than 2000 landholders have attended 100 Local Land Services workshops, information sessions, ‘smokos’ and ‘cuppas’.

“By having these interactions, we can make sure we are providing landholders with the information and advice they need to manage their farms during these tough conditions,” Mr Cranney said.

“Our role at this time remains the same as always – to assist landholders and ensure they have as much support as possible,” he finished.
