Pasture & Livestock assessment - Prograze abridged course to run in Bathurst
17 September 2015Central Tablelands Local Land Services is encouraging graziers in the Bathurst area who are interested in attending the popular PROfarm PrograzeTM course to register. This popular course is being offered as a condensed 2 full day course, with an additional day later in a different season.
"One of the most important keys in determining a more profitable and sustainable grazing system is developing skills in pasture and animal assessment" said Clare Edwards, a Senior Lands Service Officer – Pastures with Central Tablelands Local Land Services.
"Prograze is based on established proven principles of pasture and livestock production. The course is designed to help producers understand aspects of pasture quality and quantity and how these factors impact on animal production."
"One of the most powerful aspects of Prograze is using pasture and livestock assessments to match pastures to livestock requirements". Ms Edwards said.
"We also cover discussions on grazing management, fodder budgeting and supplementary feeding decisions".
The course will be run on farm in the Bathurst area on the 13 and 14 October. You need to register as there are limited spaces.
Clare Edwards will cover the pasture aspects and Brett Littler (Central Tablelands, Senior Land Services Officer – Livestock) the livestock interactions and requirements.
The NSW DPI PROfarm Prograze abridged course is available to producers in the Central Tablelands Local Land Services area. Two members from each farm business may participate. The course is fully subsidised by Central Tablelands Local Land Services.
