The Northern Territory Department of Industry, Tourism and Trade (DITT) will be holding the biennial Barkly Herd Management Forum on 11 and 12 October 2021 at Brunette Downs Station.

The course is for middle management employees such as head stockmen, overseers and assistant managers to interact with experts in various fields and learn from each other as to the best management practices for the Barkly region. The forum runs over two days with arrivals from Sunday, 10 October.

Topics vary each year to forum to ensure returning participants are presented with new information. This year, topics include grazing land management, heifer management, leadership skills, pasture technologies, correct procedural techniques (post mortem, specimen collection, biosecurity, etc), benchmarking, and its importance to the profitability of a beef business.

At each forum DITT staff provide participants with an understanding of the implications of current Northern Territory research results. Presenters are urged to ensure sessions are interactive and provide key take home messages, ideas and strategies that each participant can implement in their own situation.
