To our suppliers, seed producers, clients, colleagues and farmers,
We wish you a happy End of Financial Year!
Thank you for all your contributions to our success this financial year. As the largest fully independent and Australian-owned forage seed company, we value your ongoing loyalty and support.
As a proud Australian family-founded and operated company that has now been in operation for 22 years, we strive to maintain our customer-focused service philosophy – identifying the needs of farmers and meeting their production demands.
By acquiring the best possible germplasm from local and international sources and partnering with over 550 seed growers across Australia, we aim to produce premium seed varieties specifically for the challenging Australian environment. We promise ‘Pastures for the Australian Farmer’.
It’s been an exciting twelve months here at Pasture Genetics, but as you know, we don’t rest on our laurels.
In August, we’ll be opening our newly built state-of-the-art laboratory and purpose-built education centre at Penfield Research Station, our 18-hectare research and development site. This $500,000 facility will grow our offering of workshops and certification courses, as well as educational field days, specific to forage pasture species, to Australian agronomists and industry representatives. Watch this space.
We also have some exciting new varieties launching in (the fast approaching) year ahead – including a new forage oat variety that boasts incredibly fast speed to first cut or graze and bulk dry matter production. This exciting new variety is currently undergoing vigorous trialling across multiple sites throughout Australia.
So as we farewell FY19, we look forward.
We wish you all best for another prosperous year ahead.
We also welcome your feedback. You are always encouraged to email or call us and let us know how we’re doing.
From our family to yours.
P.S. Who says don’t work with children or animals! We do just fine.
