Regenerative Grazing Management Short Course

October 24 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

$400

Benalla, VIC – three one-day sessions in Oct 2018, Feb 2019 & April 2019

Expressions of interest (EOI) are now open to farmers in the Goulburn Broken Catchment to participate in the practical short course in regenerative grazing management over three sessions (spring, summer and autumn).

Regenerative grazing management is a planning process that deals with the complexity of integrating livestock production with pasture growth and recovery whilst regenerating land, animal health and profitability. Key principles include high stock density, long plant recovery and regular monitoring.

Regenerative grazing management can help farmers build a soil resource base, lower costs of production, and link rainfall and growing events. This decreases seasonal risk by supporting production and profit in times of climate variation.

Are you a new or experienced grazing manager?

Are you looking to jump to the next level?

The Goulburn Broken CMA is hosting a practical short course for farmers keen to trial regenerative grazing management practices and boost soil health.
This course is supported by funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program, hosted by the Goulburn Broken CMA in partnership with Stipa Native Grasses Association.
