We encourage you to invite neighbours, staff, family and friends as everyone is welcome.

Discussion Topics

  • Soil warmth after a cold winter
  • Optimal grazing in Spring
  • Mindset of change

Brief History

Alister and his wife run a mixed farming enterprise in Watervale, South Australia.  They run sheep and a vineyard, where they have been experimenting with cover cropping, biological fertilisers and integration of livestock into operations.  They are happy to share their trials and errors to date.  Alister recently completed the RCS Farming & Grazing for Profit in Orroroo in March 2022.
