Presentations from Dr Christine Jones, Nicole Masters & Graeme Hand.

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

Film 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.

Stipa 8th Native Grasslands National Conference: “No more sowing seeds with Native Grasses”

Landscape function and grassland condition are important indicators of the health of a landscape and its capability to retain water and nutrient re-serves and respond vigorously to good growing conditions. Being able to accurately and quickly assess function and condition enables land managers to improve plant and animal performance at low cost and risk and reduces vulnerability to difficult conditions.

These conference Films will provide you with the skills and knowledge to:

  • Lower your farming risk.
  • Keep more money over time in your business.
  • Increase biodiversity on your farm.
