Our Management Strategies

In summary

Our expertise is hands on - we will come up with a simple working programme that is adaptable to your needs.
Farm Management - Planned Rotational Grazing
The cattle are a tool to improving the environment landscape, and to run a profitable business.
Farm Management - Planned Rotational Grazing
Cattle graze in one herd and are moved every 2 to 3 days depending on the paddock size. Three are 60 paddocks at Bibbaringa.

Happy and Content cows make good mothers and grass convertors and healthy food for the food chain.

Farm Management - Planned Rotational Grazing
Cattle are a tool to help process carbon out of the atmosphere and stored in the soil.
Farm Management - Planned Rotational Grazing
Wetlands and ponding on the farm create biodiverse environments for all sorts of organisms to exist and thrive. Also slows the flow of water.

A mixture of old and fresh green feed creates a diverse grazing plate for the cattle. Planned Grazing builds soil and healthy animals. Reduces costs like

Slowing the flow of water through the landscape and getting back into the floodplain
Farm Management - Planned Rotational Grazing
Natural sequence farming trials at Bibbaringa. Daming a gully and slowing the flow of water from the granite hills. Setting up 2 banks for ponds and allowing nature to do the rest. Allowing the water to seep back into the flood plain rather than run down the gulley. Peter Andrews from Natural Sequence farming help us design a plan for slowing the flow of water through the landscape. The trial started in July 2014 and more contours will be extended in years to come.
Farm Management - Planned Rotational Grazing
Natural sequence farming running contours around the hills and slowing the flow of water. When contour fills the water seeps out of outlets and down the hill slope, slowing the flow and taking the water out of the gullies that have been formed by the water from modern farming practice.
Farm Management - Planned Rotational Grazing
Overflow from an existing dam and water is contoured back into the floodplain. outlets along the contour allow the water to seep back down the slope into the floodplain. This contour was constructed in July 2014 and had carried water for 10 months. Only drying out for a 2 months over the summer.
Farm Management - Planned Rotational Grazing
Resting country is an important part of our grazing management strategy. Long rest periods followed by short grazing of large mobs of animals. Results in an increase of vegetation builds soil and biodiversity and effectively uses rainfall. Photo Jerilderie NSW.
