Developing a Grazing Enterprise

November 14, 2017 @ 10:30 am - 2:30 pm

Developing a grazing enterprise – yards, infrastructure and watering systems from scratch.

• Bruce and Jillian bought the property (a 40.5 Ha agistment block) in 2014. Lack of power and watering points limited their ability to graze the property effectively.
• Bruce and Jillian will explain how they have developed the infrastructure (paddock layout, new yards, solar-powered watering system) to improve pasture and carrying capacity.
• This infrastructure has enabled the couple to implement a nutrient plan developed by Lisa Warn as part of the Healthy Soils Sustainable Farms program.
• Bruce and Jillian have also built an off-grid home on the property.
• Guest speaker, Wayne Smith, electrician, who helped design, and installed, Bruce and Jillian’s off- grid system
