Abstract

Industry vision
Total grazing pressure management in the Australian Rangelands has delivered sustained productivity growth and has responded to changing market preferences and community expectations.
Industry is better equipped to adapt to drought and climate variability through the effective management
of all herbivores.
Red meat production in the Southern Australian Rangelands is able to verify minimal negative environmental impacts and demonstrate continual environmental improvement. Over time, this will enable a defensible case for the increasing social licence of the red meat industry.
By 2024 this program of work will:
• Equip producers and jurisdictions with the means to quantify current total grazing pressure impacts and provide a predictive tool that identifies density/damage functions to inform proactive management decisions;
• Raise awareness of 1,500 land managers (~ 25 percent of the pastoral industry of Southern Australian Rangelands) of cost-effective total grazing pressure management;
• Directly engage 2000 landholders in co-learning and information exchange activities;
• Have 100 landholders contributing meta-data to the R&D program; and
• Establish at least 24 co-learning and monitoring sites within six nodes across three states (QLD, NSW, and SA).
