Successful Innovation by the North-West Branch
In the more densely-populated areas of the State, the annual field days organised by the Department of Agriculture, have long been a popular form of agricultural education. On April 3, 1954, the North-West Branch staged the first field day to be held on a Departmental property in the purely pastoral areas. The venue was Abydos and Woodstock Stations, two adjoining properties in the spinifex area, 100 miles inland from Port Hedland.
