Sustainable land management practices for graziers


What are the sustainable land management practices for graziers?

The sustainable land management practices for graziers are a collection of best management practices to support sustainable grazing and land management.

What do they aim to do?

They aim to help graziers develop whole farm practices for healthy and productive pasture systems and landscapes. These practices will also benefit the wider community through cleaner water runoff and better catchment health.

Who are they for?

These management practices are primarily for dryland beef and sheep production on grazed pastures in the Sydney drinking water catchment area. The principles also apply to other extensive grazing enterprises in these areas. The practices do not address highly intensive systems such as dairies or stock feedlots.
