08 Aug 2022
We've teamed up with Phil Graham, from Phil Graham Consulting to offer PROGRAZE® to Riverina based producers during the 2022 to 2023 financial year with support from Holbrook Landcare Network and Murrumbidgee Landcare Inc.
PROGRAZE® is a course developed by NSW Department of Primary Industries with funding from Meat and Livestock Australia and Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) and delivered by Local Land Services.
The benefits of PROGRAZE
This course can help participants build new skills and knowledge in pasture and animal assessment that improve the productivity and sustainability of grazing systems. It is designed to help producers:
- Develop practical pasture and livestock assessment skills
- To use these skills to improve the profitability and sustainability of grazing systems on their farms
PROGRAZE® can help you to visually assess pasture, understand how pasture quality can impact animal production and more. The course fee is $400 (+GST) per farm business which is subsidised by NSW Government funding.
The course is presented to individual groups and consists of 8 half day workshops, generally held 4 - 6 weeks apart. The course is hands-on, conducted on group member’s farms with in-paddock activities and discussion. Discussions with other local regional producers and practical sessions are combined for a larger social interactive learning experience.
If this sounds like something you are interested in, get in quick! Registrations close 26 August 2022.
You can register your interest through our online form.
