The last Top Paddock for the year has such a spread of stories, I love it when we get to cover a broad range of industries like this.

Christmas closures

Berrimah Farm and Coastal Plains Research Farm will remain open over the Christmas- New Year period barring public holidays. Katherine Research Station will be closed from Friday 20 December 2019, reopening Monday 6 January 2020.

For emergencies during this period call animal biosecurity/ stock movements: 0467 740 233; or for other emergencies: 0427 600 388.

In early 2020 the Darwin-based Plant Industries and Livestock Industries staff will be moving buildings. We will still be located at Berrimah Farm, but if you are visiting it might be wise to call ahead and check where we are located.

Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year to you all, stay safe and we will see you in 2020!
