A message for all families connected to the Pork and Poultry Industries
Unity College Agriculture identified in the Agriculture Strategic Plan the importance of housing livestock on-site and delivering curriculum that represented the student interest and farming industries in the Murraylands. Pork was identified as one of the livestock industries to be represented in the Unity College Agriculture program. Over the course of the last 12 months, we have worked with industry experts and the CommUnity Ag group for advice on best practice. We have taken on board the recommendation to erect an Eco-Shelter at the rear of our Agriculture block area and have recently been given council approval. Before work starts on our Eco-Shelter we would like to hear from families in our school community who keep pigs at home commercially or as a hobby farmer so that we can keep a database of contacts in the industry. Furthermore, we also invite your feedback and input in respect to any concerns or information about protecting your farm and the school farm from biosecurity risks. For this reason, we also would like to know if we have parents or students who work in the poultry industry outside of school. Feedback and contact information for families who work in the poultry or pork industry can be forwarded to email@example.com, or please make contact with the school to make an appointment to visit our Business Manager, Mr Michael Obst and Head of Agriculture, Mrs Jaylene Phillips.
