The Annual Grazing Forum is the region’s key grazing event. The field day is an opportunity to mingle and learn with like-minded people.

The Annual Grazing Forum follow-up field day will offer a welcome opportunity for landholders to discuss soil erosion issues commonly found on farms in an intimate environment. Practical demonstrations and advice around sound grazing practices and soil conservation will be led by Geoff Titmarsh, John Day and Jim Fletcher.

Highlights of the day will include a land assessment and pasture budgeting exercise together with undertaking infiltration tests and the identification of pastures and weed species found on the property.

Together with demonstrations of erosion control methods such as whoa boy installation and the use of vegetation or armour rocks.

The field day will be held in Bloomsbury, the exact location and instructions on how to get there will be sent out to all registered attendees after registrations close.
