Best practice manual for cattle production in the Top End of the Northern Territory

A cattle and land best practices manual for the Top End of the Northern Territory has been compiled and published. The idea for this manual came from a request by Top End producers, particularly those with areas of coastal floodplains on their properties, for written information on the management of cattle on the floodplains. This was expanded to include all Top End properties. The intensification of management on most properties, including the sowing of larger areas of improved pastures, has seen a need for revised management practices such as rotational grazing, more weed control and prevention of burning. This manual has endeavoured to find a balance between practical producer knowledge and experience and sound scientific advice. Reference resources are provided for readers requiring more detail on a particular subject.
