Grazing Group

The Grazing Group is a special interest group of Watershed Landcare members who are interested in networking with other graziers in the district.

The Grazing Group meets quarterly with meetings entailing a cuppa, some round-the table catch up on what's happening on each graziers' property, some support / new ideas / training from a guest speaker followed by a walk out in the paddock.

Topics covered so far include:

• Grazing Charts, a grazing management tool that gives farmers the best prediction, and earliest warning, of an oncoming drought

• Comparing before/during/after grazing in some cells plus looks at some set-stocked paddocks

• Managing changing feed quality heading into a dry autumn

• Livestock marketing with KLR Marketing

• Discussing different approaches to pasture establishment and management


This is a great opportunity to initiate and contribute to an interesting forum of proactive and progressive ‘grass growers’.

Annual cost to join is $100 per business which will used to assist the Grazing Group through coordination of meetings and engaging guest speakers. Call Agness on 0435 055 493 if this sounds like something you’d like to be part of.
