The Mackay Whitsunday Region Sustainable Grazing Guide provides relevant information and tools to assist graziers to achieve sustainable management of their land, whilst maintaining or enhancing farm efficiency and productivity.
It is designed to be a resource for finding information rather than a comprehensive manual on grazing management. Therefore, each section provides web site links, case studies, and references to published data and identifies interactive tools including applications and software.
We hope you enjoy it and we welcome coments. Please contact Michael Boland with feedback.
