Agriculture Victoria is offering Mallee farmers the opportunity to take part in a series of discussions sessions.

Mallee farmers can jump on the phone or online to chat with Agriculture Victoria land management and livestock experts over the next few months.

The Mallee Corner Post - a series of 30-minute informal discussion sessions - will be held via phone and/or Zoom, in the morning and evening, to support farmers in the Mallee with information and advice.

Agriculture Victoria livestock extension officer Erica Schelfhorst and land management extension officer Darryl Pearl, along with other technical specialists, will be available for each 30-minute information session to answer questions and offer their expertise.

There will also be an opportunity for farmers to discuss issues with other farmers and individual follow-up sessions are also available.

"Maybe you've sown late this year and are wondering how you can get your crop through the spring?," Mr Pearl said.

"These are the types of practical questions we're keen for farmers to bring to these sessions."

There will also be an opportunity for farmers to discuss issues with other farmers and individual follow-up sessions are also available.

Sessions will run on the second Tuesday of each month:

. October 12, 9.30 am and 7.30 pm: Ram health prior to joining, Dr Jeff Cave

. November 9, 9.30 am and 7.30 pm: Managing fire risks during harvest, Darryl Pearl

. December 14, 9.30 am and 7.30 pm: Open forum.

Farmers can decide when they would like to participate in a session, morning or evening, to discuss any questions they may have about livestock, grazing or land health.

To phone-in call: (03) 7018 2005 (Conference ID 881 6482 5993, Passcode 206886)
