being allowed to wear bright, safe,
colourful clothing and ride to school
on their choice of wheels.
SUPERCYCLE’S mascot, Super Sid, is pictured with the ‘design

step forward on Monday, when
the concrete slab was poured.
Catcon, which is construct-
ing part of the Stage Two Trust-
Power wind farm, provided
staff and equipment to create
the massive base.
After it cures over the next
few weeks, steel components
will be built on site and secured
to the concrete. To prevent dam-
age, people should stay off to
the newly-laid surface.

EXPORT hay growers in the Balak-
lava region and anyone with an inter-
est in the export hay industry should
attend an Australian Fodder Industry
Association (AFIA) hay grower update
at Balaklava Sports Club next Tuesday,
AFIA industry development man-
ager, Caitlin Scholfield, said the update
would be a great opportunity to learn
about the benefits of growing export
hay and to catch up with other people
in the industry.
“The district has good access to hay
export plants, and the market outlook
seems positive, making now a great time
to learn more,” Caitlin said.
The grower update is sponsored
by the Australian Exporters Company
(AEXCO), a company specialising in
commercialisation of Australian-bred
oaten hay varieties.
“AFIA’s update is a great oppor-
tunity for hay growers, exporters and
other members of the fodder industry
to network as well as be updated on
the latest information,” said AEXCO
executive officer, Denis McGrath.
The update is part of a series of
national grower updates to be hosted
by AFIA this year.
Balaklava’s event will feature a pres-
entation from Mick Faulkner on how to
make quality hay for export.
Balco’s Ray Mahoney will give an
insight into export markets. The day
runs from 10.30am-2pm. Call Caitlin
on 0417 962 991 for catering purposes.
