Charlie from year six brought Liz, the chicken, while Molly and Luke brought Spirit and Midnight to show Ben, and be in the photos. Jack, Jack and Lewis brought the trays of wheat they grow and regrow to provide the chooks with green food. Zac thanked Ben, and Addie presented him with a certificate of appreciation from the school.
We learnt from Ben that the grain isn’t grown in Terang but it is ‘milled’ there. Ridley have mills all over Australia so when their mill in South Australia was burnt down in bush fires in South Australia, other mills were able to take over the stock feed orders.
We learnt from Ben that Ridley Agriproducts produce heaps more than poultry food. Did you know that they supply food for university laboratory rats, food for the giraffes at Werribee Zoo, food for the prawn industry to supply Asian markets, food for aquaculture and other pets as well as for cattle, sheep and pigs?
