Glenreagh is a cattle-based enterprise near Glen Innes on the Northern Tablelands of NSW. It’s one of two properties run by Jim and Yvonne Benton, who has been farming in the region for over 35 years.

Jim and Yvonne are using a mosaic thinning approach through the pasture expansion section of the land management (native vegetation) code, to open up new grazing areas to help them remain sustainable during dry times in the year.

“In the past we had a standard procedure, when it got dry we put cattle on the road, in the long paddock and when it rained again, we came back. Hopefully, the work we are doing now will allow us to handle those dry times.”

- Jim Benton, cattle producer and board member, Northern Tablelands Local Land Services
