Comparing Notes

November discussion at Montrose

If only our pastures were still this green, it was November when our discussion group last visited Montrose Dairy.

Dairy discussion groups have been important for many reasons over many years in the dairy industry.  Sharing ideas, learning new ways, getting moral support or hearing from someone who has gone before are all valuable parts of being in a local discussion group.

Discussion groupI grew up with discussion group legend Jack Green often staying with my family while in the district. He would often arrive bearing gifts, maybe some footy socks from his beloved Bombers for my sister and an article from Hoards Dairyman for me. He was a master at not only inspiring farmers but also building the passion in the next generation of farmers.

We value the sharing and support that discussion groups offer.  They are always a great excuse for a tidy up too!
