Abstract

This guide is a technical resource designed to be used by advisors working with producers to improve grazing management in the grazing lands of the Burdekin catchment in Queensland. An earlier unpublished version was produced in the Northern Grazing Systems (NGS) initiative. The aim of the earlier version was to demonstrate how best to manage grazing country for beef production by optimising both pasture sustainability and return on investment. This version incorporates water quality outcomes from sustainable management of grazing lands. It is planned that over time, the guide will be improved by the information and experiences shared by producers, their advisors and researchers.
