Pasture Management

Pasture establishment

Pasture establishment is an important part of a sustainable, productive grazing system. We have developed a number of fact sheets to help landholders better manage their pastures. 

Fact Sheets: 

Pasture establishment for groundcover and productivity 

This case study explains why pasture should be treated like a crop. Landholders may consider pasture establishment to be a high risk operation, however, research trials and landholder experience have shown that the pasture establishment process can be made much more reliable if some basic guidelines are followed. 

The proof is in the pasture - addressing fertility rundown

This case study on a property called 'Tregona' in Meandarrra (Queensland) that demonstrates the importance of nutrients on the health, groundcover and production of rundown pastures for landholders in the Maranoa-Balonne catchment. 

Adapting to changing seasonal conditions

This is a case study on how maintaining productivity during increasingly variable climatic conditions has led to some major management changes for a mixed farming and grazing operation near Toobeah, west of Goondiwindi, Queensland.
