Resilience strategies for small landholders: Managing climate variability, pastures and the feed requirements of horses and sheep
This is the first webinar in a three part series to support small landholders during times of drought and the subsequent recovery processes.
Our opening webinar will discuss some topics that are constantly talked about between producers:
• Managing climate variability
• Maintenance feed requirements for horses, sheep and goats
• Land management and pasture recovery.
During this opening session, you will hear from two very experienced presenters.
Damien O’Sullivan (Senior Beef Extension Officer, Department of Agriculture and Fisheries) as he outlines the climate variability we constantly face in Australia, the current climate outlook, the on-line tools available to help us understand climate variability and how they can be used to help us manage climate variability. Damien will also discuss the maintenance feed requirements for horses, sheep and goats (in your care) during his presentation.
Bruce Lord (Senior Scientist, Healthy Land & Water) will he discuss best grazing land management practices, why we should be using them and how to recover our pastures following drought.
Each presentation will be followed by a question and answer session where you can ask your questions directly to the presenter.
