A successful Rakaia Gorge high country station is opening its
farm gate next week.
Snowdon Station, on Lake Coleridge Road, will host the next
Beef and Lamb New Zealand central Canterbury farming for
profit field day on Wednesday, March 26.
Facilitator Tom Fraser said Snowdon Station had a proven
record for producing high quality lambs for its on-farm sale
in mid-January each year.
''The field day will be a great opportunity for farmers to
see and understand the management systems that are put in
place to achieve this objective.
''Snowdon Station has a good balance of flats and high
country pastures and the approach taken to integrate these
land classes into the grazing management system to maximise
sheep production will be fully explored.''
He said Snowdon Station had an on-going pasture development
plan, both on the flat and on uncultivatable hills and the
results of these programmes would be discussed.
