Abstract

MLA initiated this project as part of the Northern Grazing Systems (NGS) projects which aim to increase adoption of innovative best-practice grazing management by beef producers throughout northern Australia.
This initial development of work in Phase 1 of NGS is complete. Initially, an analysis of the grazing systems in northern Australia was undertaken to determine what activities were required to develop this project. Three major components identified were 1) synthesis of relevant
scientific information on stocking rate, spelling, fire and intensity of infrastructure development, 2) regional assessment of current best practices and property profiles, and 3) a bio-economic framework combining the biophysical model GRASP and an economic analysis tool. Draft schedules (attached) covering these components have been developed for DPI&F (the regional assessments and bio-economic framework) and with CSIRO (synthesis component).
The success of MLA in gaining funding under Caring for Our Country has expanded the original plans under Phase 1 of NGS. This meant some changes to those plans developed late in 2008.
