Workshops

Regenerative Grazing to Increase Soil Health and Profitability”

with Graeme Hand

Curious about transitioning to a low risk, low cost system of grazing that increases soil health and still delivers profits?

This workshop is a warts and all look at Regenerative Grazing led by Graeme Hand, farmer and Holistic Management educator.

Topics discussed will be:

  • animal health and performance,
  • pasture pests and weeds,
  • reducing fertiliser requirements,
  • improving water infiltration,
  • eliminating erosion,
  • regenerating perennial grasses and
  • boosting soil biology.

Practice areas will be set up to gauge the grass recovery period. You will go home knowing how to do this on your own farm. Appropriate for all scales and types of grazing operations

Saturday 2 November 2019, 10am – 3pm, Simon and Michelle Burgess, 103 Donnellys Rd, Geeveston
