Great opportunity for landholders to see how pasture trial site is thriving post flood

Greater Sydney Local Land Services is encouraging all landholders, community members and stakeholders to attend an upcoming workshop where specialist staff members will detail pasture options available to graziers in the Sydney basin, post floods.

After much of Greater Sydney experienced flooding and higher than average rainfall since the start of the year, this workshop presents a great opportunity for local landholders and other interested parties to receive the latest advice and ask any questions they have with regards to pastures and pasture management.  

Additionally, the workshop will also showcase the Greater Sydney Local Land Services pasture trial site which has not just survived but is thriving despite the impacts of floods and grazing pressure from sheep.

Senior Land Services Officer, Peter Conasch is looking forward to the event and hearing from local graziers on how their pastures are performing post floods.

“This event will be a great opportunity to get a gauge from local graziers on how their pastures are faring post floods, while giving them some information around the things they can do to help supress weeds and improve soil health,” Mr Conasch said.

“By taking some simple steps, your pasture can really benefit, and this has flow on effects to other areas of your operation.

“We’ve been really pleased with how the pasture at our trial site has and continues to perform as we move further into winter, I’ll be interested to hear from others if they’re having similar experiences.”
