SunRice Grower of the Year winners to open up Jerilderie farm

By Rodney Woods

SunRice Grower of the Year winners Peter and Renee Burke will host a field day at their Jerilderie farm on Thursday, December 12.

The Burkes claimed the award in August, because they ‘‘skilfully used the temporary water market to secure water at minimal cost and employed off-farm expertise to good effect’’.

The field day will be held from noon to 4.30pm with a barbecue dinner to finish.

The day will also include a ‘What makes a successful farm business?’ Q&A panel with Westpac senior relationship manager Geoff King, Brian McCleary & Co Accountants’ Paul O’Donnell and agronomist Greg Sefton, from Sefton Agronomics.

Buses have been arranged to leave from Barham and Griffith.
