Grazing Fundamentals is a one-day workshop for people involved in the grazing industry wanting to gain a better understanding of the core principles behind good grazing management.

Grazing Fundamentals has been designed to give you a broad understanding of the components of the grazing production system and the core, scientifically-backed principles behind optimising grazing land productivity. It looks at the local influences on pasture yield and quality and how seasonal planning and strategic management can be used to achieve land condition and animal production goals. Grazing Fundamentals is part of Meat & Livestock Australia’s EDGENetwork suite of accredited training workshops.

Each participant will receive course notes and worksheets. Catering is also provided. *The workshop price also covers a follow-up field skills workshop and one-on-one property visit sponsored by the Condamine Headwaters Landcare Group.
