Cropping & Pastures
Pastures and cropping, as essential components of most farming enterprises, is undertaken at Farrer.
Lucerne, oats, barley and sorghum are produced, some of which is processed into feed for our other livestock activities and associated classes. We are currently moving towards greater involvement of the students in the sowing, management and harvesting of crops and pastures.
Irrigation of pastures has been substantially improved with the introduction of the Renewable Solar Project.
