North Coast Local Land Services supporting Primex 2022

As the region recovers from devastating flooding earlier in the year and the ongoing wet conditions, landholders, primary producers and visitors will be able to access help and information at the North Coast Local Land Services stand at Primex 2022.

North Coast Local Land Services General Manager Louise Orr  said they have twice the space booked for this year’s event to cater for the additional services and information that will be on offer.

“Given the impact of the flood on the community we are having a strong focus on flood recovery at Primex,” Ms Orr said.

“We will have our team on the ground for all three days of the event providing support and information to landholders who have been impacted by the flood and are still being affected with the ongoing wet weather.”

The North Coast Local Land Services team has a range of technical expertise  and visitors can come and listen to a program of specialist presentations or talk to the team one on one.

“We are working on the presentation program now which will feature a range of talks on land management, erosion control, biosecurity, animal health and, of course, flood recovery,” she said.

“The Biosecurity team will be on hand to offer advice to landholders about how to control pest animals including wild dogs, feral deer and pigs, which require ongoing vigilance by landholders.”

The North Coast Local Land Services team will also provide advice on how landholders can better manage pastures and crops and protect the natural resources of their land, manage riverbank erosion and meet their land management regulatory requirements.

“To round out services provided at the North Coast LLS stand, the District Vets will be on hand to help with a range of animal health issues like nutrition or disease,” Ms Orr said.

Primex 2022 runs for three days, commencing on 10 November. Gates open at 9am each day and the North Coast Local Land Services team will be available each day of the event at Site A1/A2.
