Living Soils – Nutrisoil Open Day 2011
Comments from attendees:
– Rewarding & informative.
– Too much to take in in 1 day
– Graeme Hand’s grazing management talk very useful, especially how long he suggests rest periods ie. 150 days
– Liquid carbon pathway through microbial bridge particularly interesting. Why aren’t we all doing it?
– Changed our pasture management since the day.
– Another “not to be missed” Open Day
– I have been studying the biological approach for the last 18 years and been implementing. Still picking up tips from your speakers

STIPA’s 6th National Native Grasslands: “Holistic Management Amazing Results”
DVD 1: THE IMPORTANCE OF MANAGEMENT Graeme Hand, Branxholme, Victoria
Graeme’s property, small beef (200 ha) was purchased in 2001 and had previously been cropped or “pasture improved”. The majority of the property was capeweed, onion grass, bare ground and thistles with some areas of ryegrass and phalaris. Using the Holistic Management® framework and Planned grazing™ the property now has significant areas of native grasses as well as introduced perennial grasses. A simple explanation of this management is provided.
