Pine and cypress trees in our region seem to have had a tough season, lots of dead and dying rows of trees can be seen on many farms. We have dead and dying pines on all corners of the farm. I’ve heard plenty of theories as to why these trees are dying but I’m not sure why. The Pine tree, Pinus radiata was the farm tree of choice in this district 30-40 years ago and while we don’t plant them any more we (& our stock) will miss the shelter these trees provided.

- This week is the Aussie Backyard Bird Count ran by Birdlife Australia. So grab your bird book, download the app, whatever is your thing, and get out there and get counting. Birds are a critical part of our biodiversity if we don’t know what is out there how can we know what to look after? #twitcher #aussiebirdcount #birdlife #bird #biodiversity #landcare #paddocktoplateAhh the colours and patterns of silage season. One cut down, 🤞plenty more to come. Silage is #fermented pasture. We mow and collect the lush spring pasture, pack it tightly into a pit to remove as much of the oxygen as possible and let it ferment in its own juices. Once preserved like this it can last for years. It's like kimchi for cows! #pasture #fermentedfoods #fermentation #silageseason #silage
