Grazing Land Management EDGE builds on Grazing Fundamentals on day 1. In addition, it reviews the science and principles behind different land management strategies you can use to optimise your land condition and productivity.

Attending this workshop will help you to:

  • better understand the connection between land condition, pasture growth and animal production
  • allow for climate variability when planning livestock management
  • recognise and account for the dominant land types in on your property
  • make realistic carrying capacity estimates based on the mix of land types, condition of these land types and timber competition
  • choose appropriate tools and strategies to improve land condition and carrying capacity.

In addition to what you have already learnt in Grazing Fundamentals, you will learn:

  • how to assess long-term carrying capacity of paddocks and properties
  • what influences the tree/grass balance and how to manage for these influences
  • the role of fire, sown pastures and weed management in healthy, productive grazing systems.
