Wincott brings Moree Information Day
22
May '08
A small group of Women involved in the cotton industry took time out for an interesting and informative day at the Moree TAFE Agriculture Skills Centre. A number of topics were presented and a display of cotton products was available from “The Cotton Shop” in Moree.

“Wincott” stands for women's industry network cotton. It is an organisation that aims to provide support, information and resources to encourage and empower women in the cotton industry to attain skills, confidence and to have an informed “voice” in the agricultural sector.

“The Moree information day is one of the ways Wincott extends information to women involved in the cotton industry” says Kate Schwager the outgoing publicity officer of Wincott.

Janelle Montgomery gave an overview on the improvements people can make to their irrigation; it can also help in the overall saving of water on a farm.

She also updated the women on systems that are now available to save and monitor water during irrigation and in storages. “It is amazing what you can learn on how to save water” said Kate Schwager

Anne Coote, Teacher in Charge of the TAFE Ag Centre gave us a detailed analysis on how you can be recognised for prior learning and how this can be of great benefit to those wishing to do further studies.

“You may not know it, but you may already have done half the modules to receiving a Diploma in Agriculture before you get into the classroom” Anne said. This is agreat way to further your education through TAFE to gain the recognition for what you have already achieved.

Wincott was very lucky to have Paul Merideth from Austsafe Super, who has just become a Gold Sponsor of Wincott, to explain a few things about Superannuation from and Employee and Employer perspective.

He was able to explain a number of packages that they have available as well as the basic government rulings when it comes to Superannuation.

The Border Rivers Gwydir CMA explained what Native Vegetation is and how the Act affects each farm and individual. “If you are informed and have a better understanding of the Act and what Native Vegetation is you can use this to benefit your farm and your community. Jane Humphries said.
