Free workshop on natural grazing methods

July 23, 2019

The popularity of free workshops with a grazing practices expert has led to another event in August.

Terrain NRM is bringing Dick Richardson back to the Tablelands for a ‘Grazing Naturally’ workshop on Wednesday 28 August – and is encouraging graziers from all over Far North Queensland to come along.

Terrain’s Jen Mackenzie said Richardson’s down-to-earth manner and advice resonated with graziers.

“The focus will be on flexible paddock-grazing practices, managing grazing pressures paddock by paddock and improving soil health through pasture and animal grazing practices,’’ she said.

“But Dick is more than happy to answer questions one on one as well. This is for graziers who missed out last time and for those who want to build on what they learnt in April or at last year’s events.”

The Grazing Naturally workshop is at Jaggan Hall near Malanda from 9am to 4pm.

The event is part of Terrain NRM’s Upper Johnstone Integrated Project, funded by the Queensland Government’s Natural Resource Investment Program, and its Herbert River Gully and Grazing project funded through the Australian Government’s Reef Trust Phase IV program. Both projects are focused on repairing erosion and changing land management practices to help graziers and to reduce the amount of sediment flowing to the Great Barrier Reef.
