My Husband and I run a dairy farm at Hogarth Range near Casino in NSW. We have had a few years dealing with this relentless drought. We are a dryland farm, so dont have irrigation to grow our crops. Last years crops failed and this years is not going well either. We are going to build a Fodder shed so that we can grow our feed in it to feed to our beautiful girls (cows). This shed allows you to grow feed from grain to green shoots in 5 to 7 days.
It is built using cool room panels and we need some lovely people to come help us build it. We need to put the panels up and then install the racking, trays, watering system and lights inside. This is our last hope to save our farm as we cannot continue to afford to buy feed for our cows, that is when we can source good quality feed to ensure our girls milk well.
We hope to start building in the next 2 to 3 weeks with the start date being approx the 19th of June 2019. For further information please ask when applying.
