AGRICULTURE AND RURAL OPERATIONS EXCURSION TO STANTHORPE

23/03/2015
At Qld College of Wine and Tourism
In early February, the Year 11/12 Agricultural Science and Rural Operation students had taken part in a three day camp to Stanthorpe and the surrounding areas. Whilst on the camp, myself and fellow students, visited numerous farms and feedlots, gaining first-hand experience on the procedures and regulations that farmers undertake on a regular basis.  The days were long and we were nearly constantly departing the bus and setting foot onto a new property. A personal favourite, and many other students’ favourites, was the fine wool merino sheep property.  The owners had graciously yarded 50 or so sheep and demonstrated the wool procedures, sheering of the sheep, drenching and how they use working dogs in aiding them to work sheep. The camp overall was a joyous and memorable experience.
