Join the Northern Grazing Demonstration Team from the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) and Ian and Penny MacGibbon from Ametdale to see a paddock scale demonstration of stocking around long-term carrying capacity, adjusting stocking rates proactively as seasons vary and wet season spelling. Hear how this relates to 20 years of grazing systems research at the Wambiana Grazing Trial, Charters Towers. There will also be an update on progress with the pasture dieback projects.

Key speakers include:

  • Peter O‚ÄôReagain, DAF Charters Towers
  • Geoff Fordyce, DAF Charters Towers
  • Ian MacGibbon, Ametdale
