Wallal Field day and Soil Health Workshop

Welcome to the Wallal Field day and Soil Health Workshop
Can I please remind you if you haven’t already to complete the registration form down the back.
Could I also please ask you to complete the evaluation form attached to this handout.
If you would be interested in collecting and sending some soil samples away to be test can you please complete the attached Expression of Interest form and return it. Please be aware that I am unsure of the total cost or the level of subsidy which SW NRM are able to offer. If you register you will receive more information as soon as it is available.
To get to Wallal you need to go down the Cunnamulla Road, it is 22km from the Charleville railway crossing to the Wallal Turn off. The turn off is on the WESTERN side of the road and has grid with white gates. If you get to the Angellala bridge turn around, you have gone too far.
The house is approximately 2km off the road, just follow the road in there are no turn offs

CFOC Sustainable Agriculture Mulga Graze

Abstract or description: 

The use of new technology for water point monitoring. 

Through the federal government CFOC programme, South West NRM are currently running a trial aimed at reducing the time that it takes to monitor watering points and storage using remote telemetry cameras that are couple to Telstra messaging. Through the installation of these cameras, the property owners involved in the CFOC Mulga graze project, will no longer have to actually physically visit the site and instead will be able to view the image via their computer or mobile phone.
