Learn about grazing management
31 July 2014
Grazing management is one of the most talked about topics on farms. Central Tablelands Local Land Services (LLS) and Tocal are teaming together to deliver a one day workshop to producers in the Oberon, Sodwells and Lithgow area, on the 14th, 15th and 25th of August.
The day will cover the effects of grazing management on pastures dynamics including quantity and quality of feed. Clare Edwards, pasture agronomist with the Local Land Services explained that the introduction day will also cover information on pasture production, groundcover and biodiversity.
"Grazing management can mean a number of different things including grazing systems that you might use" Clare said. "We will explore various grazing systems and cover their pros and cons.
During the day we will help producers understand how pasture production influences animal performance."
Seasonal pasture production in the Central Tablelands and the interaction between pasture diversity and the grazing animal will also be discussed during the day.
There will be a mixture of theory and outside discussions examining grazing management.
The workshop starts at 10.00am sharp and will finish at 3.00pm. The day is free but participants will need to RSVP as places are limited.
Please bring your hat, sturdy shoes, raincoat and digital camera. If you are interested in attending please RSVP to the Lithgow LLS office on 6350 3110 for directions or further details.
