Natural Resource Management case studies
Our team have been working on some wonderful projects in the North West region.
Check some of them out below:
Big Jacks Creek
North West Local Land Services and landowner Roger Ottery have undertaken a project to rehabilitate a portion of Big Jacks Creek in the Upper Liverpool Plains. The project that started in 2019 has already shown a major improvement in the water quality.
Using regenerative farming to enhance biodiversity
Nigel and Sue Smith run a 1,000 hectare cattle farm located on the outskirts of Tamworth. After the 2018-2019 drought they decided it was time to adapt to a rapidly changing climate. They implemented a series of regenerative farming strategies to bring biodiversity back to their land.
A Holistic management approach to improve natural assets
Being able to create a property that could maintain healthy production and endure the traditional boom and bust cycle is the dream of every grazier. John and Sam Hickson at ‘Eural’ near Boomi in North West NSW are progressing this dream to reality, as they ramp up the journey to phase in a new approach to regenerate soils and native pastures.
Upper Mooki Rehydration Project
In 2019, 13 landholder enterprises joined forces as a Landcare group partnering with North West Local Land Services on a $660,000 project called the ‘Upper Mooki Rehydration Project’.
