Our Research farm is located in Bairnsdale where we will deliver our findings to benefit the farmers in the Gippsland Region.
Gippsland Agricultural Group Inc. is a volunteer, not for profit organisation based in Gippsland, that will carry out relevant research trials and demonstrations.
Committee of Management
Chair – Trevor Caithness
Trevor and his wife Carryn run a cattle breeding and finishing operation at Forge Creek, along with growing wheat and barley for local feed markets.
Their farming operation has been developed over the last 16 years, since relocating to the East Gippsland region.
The farm size is 1, 410 hectares plus 340 hectares owned and operated by son Toby. The same machinery is used to farm both properties thus giving good utilization of machinery assets.
Trevor has a strong desire to see Agricultural Research being done here in East Gippsland to help unlock the potential productive value of our soils and farming systems, therefore creating a robust viable agricultural industry for now and future generations.
