Councillor Cameron O'Neil said that with over 100 landholders, speakers and sponsors in attendance, the TopCrop Field Day held at Gavin Burey's property 'Maree Downs' was a great success.
"Councillor Janelle Stanford and myself went along for the day to support the TopCrop Field Day team for what was an informative agricultural industry field day," Cr O'Neil said.
"This is the second year this event has been run and the first with Council's assistance. I strongly support initiatives like this field day and I encourage groups interested in running events like this to apply for support from Council's community grants program.
"Given the recent rain, there was a real sense of positivity from the landholders who attended – it was great to see."
Council provided over $45,000 to community groups across the region in the last round of community grants. The next round will open on 1 August and close on 30 September 2018.
