The  Soilkee Demonstration field day was held at the property of Ron and Carmen Barnacle on April 21st 2017. Attendees braved the weather to see the Soilkee Renovator in action. The landholder, Ron Barnacle spoke on the history of the property including his and his wife Carmen’s philosophy of sustainable farm management. As it wasn’t raining too much we went on a walk into the paddocks.  Neils Olsen, the inventor and manufacturer of the SoilKee introduced the mechanics of the pasture renovator and demonstrated its use in. Our agronomist, Chris Alenson facilitated a field discussion in two paddocks, one treated and one untreated.  He included an explanation of his rapid soil assessment method, soil test comparison and feed test comparison on the treated and untreated paddock.
