National Ag Day is a chance to celebrate the career opportunities the Agriculture Industry has on offer. From cotton farming in the Riverina to mustering cattle in the Top End or developing the next Agri Tech device that is going to change the game for the Agriculture industry. There is a career pathway for everyone.
We wanted to celebrate our teams contribution to the industry. Help bridge the gap between what our manufacturing team do, to where the product they are making ends up and how it is helping everyday Aussie Farmers.
So off we ventured to local dairy farmer Greg Brooks property in Strathmerton, Victoria. Greg took us on a farm tour of his property.
The team were able to ask lots of questions and dive deep into how our products work on farm.
Now Greg’s a pretty typical Aussie bloke, with a pretty good sense of humor to boot. He shared stories of being able to head to the footy on the weekend. His automation continued to work for him, even without him being there.
Simply set and forget!
Greg gets to enjoy a beer or two at the footy, and is still being productive back at the farm. With added reassurance from a text message or app notification to set his mind at ease that all is going to plan.
We were lucky enough to have founder John Padman join us for the day. John talked about the history of irrigation. Providing the team with an entertaining recount of where the company and the irrigation industry started. Along with the trials and tribulations that have got us to today’s automated irrigation technologies.
All up the team had a fantastic day learning from Greg. We can’t thank the Brooks family enough for having us on farm for the day and imparting their knowledge and experiences.
