Grazing Fundamentals EDGE Workshop | Charters Towers, Queensland

Grazing Fundamentals EDGE is a one-day workshop designed to give you a broad understanding of the components of the grazing production systems and the core, scientifically-backed principles behind optimising grazing land productivity.

Participants will be able to make better decisions to achieve grazing performance by looking at the local influences on pasture yield and quality and how seasonal planning and strategic management can be used to achieve land condition and animal production goals.

Attending this workshop will help you to:

  • better understand the connection between land condition, pasture growth and animal production
  • understand how climate influences pasture growth
  • allow for climate variability when planning livestock management
  • build a seasonal climate profile for your location.

What you will learn:

  • environmental regulators of pasture growth and quality
  • local seasonal pasture growth patterns and key decision dates
  • how soil properties influence pasture growth
  • how grazing affects pasture plants, their productivity and growth
  • how to assess land condition and how this impacts on carrying capacity
  • when and how to use pasture spelling
  • principles behind successful grazing systems
  • what’s involved with forage budgeting.
