This course provides the knowledge and skills required for the adoption of best practice pasture agronomy and grazing management. Participants use monitor paddocks on their farm to trial course concepts. Key outcomes of this course are improved knowledge of the farm landscape, fertiliser use, pasture management, and understanding of carrying capacity when the performance of different monitor paddocks is compared. Other outcomes include better knowledge of pasture species, feedbase design, and improved production and feed utilisation through advanced grazing management.
