Sustainable grazing - a producer resource
Good quality pasture makes livestock production systems more efficient and leads to reduced methane emissions per hectare.
Sustainable grazing - a producer resource will explain how grazing management techniques can be used to acheive these productivity and emissions benefits.
There are five sections in this resource:
- Running a sustainable grazing business
- Climate variability - using water wisely
- Healthy fertile soils
- Productive, persistent and profitable pastures
- Grazing management
Each section outlines best practice and references appropriate tools and case studies of producers who are implementing these practices on their properties.
Sustainable grazing - a producer resource was developed through Farm300, an initiative to assist Australian livestock producers increase on-farm productivity and profitability while decreasing GHG emissions intensity from livestock production.
This resource was based on the MLA publications Towards sustainable grazing and Grazing land management: Sustainable and productive natural resource management and incorporates the latest research outcomes and knowledge.
