Ethical, Sustainable, Profitable Wool Production Wins At Sustainability Awards
Last Thursday, Winslow's Finnigan family farm, Kia Ora, won the Small and Medium Enterprises category Award and the Premier’s Regional Recognition Award in this year's Victorian Premier's Sustainability Awards for their cross-operational commitment to sustainability.
E.S.P. or Ethical, Sustainable, Profitable wool production is now a feature of the farm, just north of Warrnambool. The Finnigan's approach pulls together existing data and knowledge to change farm practices such as reducing chemical use, changing genetic selection of sheep, sowing permanent pastures, slowing or stopping runoff into rivers and increasing carbon sequestration.
