Grazing Land Management Practice Survey Results

Grazing Land Management Practice Survey Results

To ascertain the changes in the management of grazing lands, the Dalrymple Landcare Committee Inc commissioned a survey to determine the level of adoption of sustainable grazing land management practices and determine the impact of governments funding in facilitating the adoption process in the era of landcare. The years of 1994 and 2004 were chosen as a comparison because of their seasonal similarities. Surveys were sent out to a proportion of land managers in four groups consisting of managers pre 1994 and post 1994 then those that had received funding and those who had not. The survey consisted of six sections titled The Land, Biodiversity, The Property, The Herd, The Finances and Involvement in Landcare. The Land section was sub-titled Grazing Management, Riparian Management, Pest Management and Drought Management. Copies of the Survey results can be downloaded here.
