Message from the editor

It’s the first edition of a new year and with it we have a few changes. Arthur Cameron, who has been the editor of Top Paddock for 20 years, is having a bit of break from the newsletter. He is still working for the department, and will still contribute articles to Top Paddock. You can continue to contact him for advice and read about what is going on in the world of pastures.

Phil Hausler will be the temporary Director of Plant Industries Development for the next six months. Phil has been working in the minerals and energy division, but many may remember him from his time at Katherine, Douglas Daly and Berrimah Farm several years ago.

We’ve had a wonderful start to the Wet Season, and after a series of poor Wet Seasons it is a welcome relief. There have been some issues around access and bogging, but that comes with the Territory. Enjoy the storms and the cooler weather that the rain brings.

Cheers

Chelsea Moore, editor
