THE government is dealing with more and more aged care facilities battling the pandemic sweeping across Victoria, and Carinya Aged Care in Korumburra is being ever vigilant in ensuring their infection control protocols are as rigorous as possible.
For that reason, the local fundraising events for Carinya’s vital infrastructure works had to be put on hold due to the pandemic, except for the calf rearing program.
Eddie Hams, the livestock coordinator for Landmark, reported there were now 64 steers out on grass and with the start of spring not too far away, he said that now was the time to “push forward and expand the program”.
To that end, Carinya is delighted that with the valued assistance of Paul Dunlop and Rob Ould from Alex Scott & Co, the program can now expand through their network of clients.
Carinya welcomes Alex Scott & Co on board to assist in the extraordinary work that Eddie Hams, Terry Ginnane from Nutrien Harcourts Yarram Real Estate and South Gippsland Livestock has initiated.
Apart from sourcing and placing young steers out on various properties, Rob Ould is especially keen to identify those dairy farmers who would donate a calf or two to run on.
Carinya president Jenny Blackmore is extremely appreciative of the work that our farming community is doing for our most vulnerable.
Jenny is really grateful to those who have donated substantial amounts from the sale of cattle or by simply making a highly valued direct donation.
She added: “Every dollar raised from the calf rearing program will be used to build new facilities that will ensure a home can be found for our elderly when most needed.”
