The Goulburn Mulwaree Landcare Grazing and Farming group currently runs informally under the guidance of the Upper Lachlan Grazing Group. Under their continued guidance, the purpose of this event is to encourage farmers with a shared interest in improving their landscape management, to join. This to lead to a fully established group that will operate in its own right.

The Upper Lachlan Grazing Group brings excellent credentials to the event in helping its own members not just to survive the  drought but to thrive.

The objective for those attending is that each farmer will have a sense of being an valued member of the group.

Why Attend?

Most farmers want to leave their farm in better shape than when they arrived but that is getting increasing difficult with the onset of a changing  climate bringing with it the challenges of increasing temperatures, changing rainfall patterns and predictions of reduced rainfall. In addition a predicted increase in the occurrence of droughts and their severity present significant challenges. These challenges deserve a rethink of current conventional farming practices in order to address these unprecedented challenges.

Joining the Grazing and Farming Group and sharing your story with your peers in a supportive and non-judgmental environment under the guidance of a facilitator, enables the sharing of knowledge of better ways of managing your landscape. This helps to improve farm profitability and to reduce the stresses of farming.
