Grazing Best Management Practices (BMP) is a voluntary industry-led tool assisting graziers to identify changes that can improve long-term profitability, productivity and sustainability. In this workshop two modules based on topics key to any beef production enterprise are discussed.

Grazing land management

Identifies considerations for managing forage, stocking rate and stocking capability of your land. Topics include:

  • maps and property information
  • land capability and condition
  • managing resources
  • managing the grazing pressure
  • improved pastures and forage crops
  • weeds and pest animals

Soil health

Healthy soils allow the landscape to consistently produce the best pastures possible of that soil type. This module assists graziers to assess the practices that influence soil health including:

  • infiltration
  • soil stability
  • nutrient cycling

What’s in it for you?

By participating in Grazing BMP you can:

  • benchmark you practices against industry set standards
  • identify opportunities and develop a plan to improve your business performance
  • access information and support
