Grazing Matcher Groups
14 December, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 1:00 pm, repeating until 15 December, 2017
Two small grazing groups (up to 10 businesses each) will commence on 14 and 15 December to provide producers with the skills and support to optimise their grazing system.
For a cost of $500, growers can take part in 8 meetings between December 2017 and November 2018.
Meetings will feature a hands-on approach within a supportive network and with technical guidance. Grazing matcher program
At this stage, places are open only for commercially viable beef enterprises (sheep businesses may also join) within SWCC catchment area. The main aim of the groups is to foster practice changes to increase production, profitability and resilience via efficient pastures production and utilisation.
The initiative follows the very successful “Making Hay Pay” workshops. SWCC and Western Beef (former Beef Improvement Association) have joined forces again to support these groups.
