This year's Agri Culture magazine is a celebration of farming and the agriculture industry within Ballarat and the Wimmera regions. Inserted into The Courier, The Ararat Advertiser and Stawell Times, the cover story showcases the work of Ballarat shearer-cum-photographer, James Braszell, who captures the colour and activity from inside local shearing sheds.
There are a range of on farm profiles, looking at the lives of families working in the sheep, dairy and cropping industries, together with interesting yarns on bucking bulls, an impressive sheep tag collection, and the connection between Merino sheep and AFL footballers.
Agri Culture also takes a look at life as an agriculture student, and reviews some of the upcoming industry events, including the Elmore Field Days and next week's Sheepvention.
Once you've read about how the digital world is infiltrating agriculture, why not try the blood orange and goat’s curd tart recipe, which takes full advantage of seasonal produce.
With all these stories and more, there are plenty of reasons to track down your copy of this year's Agri Culture. Click here to read the magazine online.
