Are there forums out there, like Cyberhorse, but for the general Australian farming community? I was thinking of something that works at a national level (again, similar to Cyberhorse). Somewhere where farmers can swap ideas, sell excess stock and equipment etc. or just show off pics like we do here :-)

Hoping you guys can help me out.

Cheers!

I think it would be a great idea and something worthwhile.

*bump* to get it back onto the first page...

I posted on the weekend and am hoping some of the weekday peoples might add their thoughts/knowledge/answers.

Cheers!

You might be interested to know that Cyberhorse is constructing a web site for the Natural Sequence Association which has been recently formed to promote the Peter Andrews Natural Sequence Farming methods.

You may recall that Peter Andrews was featured on Australian Story where he talked about his ideas for improving the Australian landscape by capturing water "in" the ground rather than "on" it.

The project he was working on at the time was at Baramul Stud. I've been to see it recently and the transformation is nothing short of remarkable.

Peter's own family property Tarwyn Park in the Bylong valley is also a testament to his work. It was an oasis of green during the drought last summer where all the properties around were just desert.

I'm on the committee of the NSA and its web site is at www.naturalsequenceassociation.org.au. There is a forum there but its not yet been activated. This wil change shortly.

Thanks Bill! Very interesting... I remember seeing this fellow on the ABC.

Which brings me to the fact that no-one has put forward The Land online or Landline as possible places to engage in discussions with other farmers. I'm stuck again :-(

Thanks,
VM
