Sunshine Coast YDN – Camel and Buffalo Farm Visit – POSTPONED
October 13, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pmFree
The Sunshine Coast YDN are planning a day out in the region on Saturday 13th October 2018, and you are invited!!! The day will commence with a visit to QCamel at the Glasshouse Mountains, where Director Lauren will give us a personal tour of the Camel dairy and share with us the history of QCamel. We will get to enjoy morning tea at the dairy and experience some of the products they produce. From here, we will travel to Maleny and enjoy lunch at a venue yet to be confirmed. Any suggestions for a lunch venue would be much appreciated. To conclude the day, we will visit Maleny Buffalo Dairy where we will get to meet the buffaloes and get an overview from Margaret Thompson on the differences between milking cows and buffaloes. You are most welcome to attend all or part of the day. Please mark your diaries, get a carload of dairy farmers together and join us for an informative, fun packed day. The YDN will cover the cost of the QCamel tour and any costs associated with the Maleny Buffalo Dairy visit. It will be your responsibility to pay for lunch and get to each venue, however, should you require assistance, please let me know. I am really keen to get the YDN Sunshine Coast group up and running again and would appreciate any ideas or assistance with this. A Steering Committee meeting will be held at 9 am on the 13th October, before the QCamel tour and it would be great to see some new faces. Very little is involved in being a part of this Committee. We plan to meet four times a year, where we will discuss ideas on social and technical events that are of interest to young farmers in the region. That is all that is involved; I do the rest!! Event details below and I hope to see you on the 13th of October.
