Congratulations to Mr David Duncan from Kilcoy and his recent achievements for being awarded the Excellence in Feedlot Education Medal at the Australian Lot Feeders Association’s SmartBeef conference.   Teys Condamine livestock manager, Mr Duncan was selected as one of three finalists for the award.

The Brisbane Valley Kilcoy Landcare Group is holding its AGM on 23 October, and a huge call out to any community member who may have time available to help out.  Most of the Executive positions will be declared vacant and without support, this group has a real chance of disappearing from our community.  Please come along if you have a regard for this type of local voluntary group.

A huge thank you to our SES and Rural Fire Brigades for their efforts during recent fires in our region.
