RCS KIT Field Day – Pinevale QLD

March 25 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

KIT Field days are an opportunity for like-minded people to gather on a property to discuss topics relevant to that region and see firsthand how RCS principles are being applied in similar land types and production systems. We encourage you to invite neighbours, staff, family and friends as everyone is welcome.

Discussion Topics

  • Analysing grazing charts: stocking rates and rest periods
  • Matching enterprises to land types: to breed or fatten or do both
  • Livestock and sugar cane integration: property development in challenging terrain

Brief History

Andrew and Melissa run a mixed enterprise consisting of sugar cane, soya bean and cattle production on their 830ha Pinevale property west of Mackay.

Andrew has lived at Pinevale all his life and runs the property with wife Melissa.  They integrate their soy, cattle and sugar enterprises and have adopted many of the RCS Principles after completing the GrazingforProfit™ school in 2018, introducing more cells, watering points and stock rotations to improve soil and land health.

They are passionate about improving soil health.
