“Building Resilient Farming Systems – Revisiting 1 Year On – Evandale & Jericho”
June 28th & 30th, 2022
10am – 4pm.

It’s time to check in on the grazing trials established 12 months ago. The trials compared the combination of high stock density, high grass utilisation and longer grass recoveries, with low stock density, low utilisation and shorter recoveries.

What has been the change in soil health and function?

The workshop part of the days will be all about the ‘how to’.

Two dates and locations – visit the Humanitix event link for Jericho and the event link for Evandale for more details and booking info.
