A farmer who turned a community issue into an innovative business has won the Pasture Genetics National Fodder Innovation Award at the Royal Adelaide Show.
Kadina farmer Brenton McRae won the award, which was offered for the first time in the show’s 178-year history.
With an overflowing dam in Kadina creating problems for the community, Mr McRae offered Copper Coast Council some of his land to build another dam to store the water.
