Grazing BMP

DLC land managers complete their Grazing

Best Management Practice (Grazing BMP)

Five Dalrymple region businesses have now completed their Grazing BMP. QDAFF staff presented the final module, “People and Business”, at a morning workshop in Charters Towers on the 26th of July. The guest speaker at the morning was James Cupples of Farmsafe Queensland, who spoke of about the workplace health and safety obligations of property managers. This was a very informative session. In addition to those completing 5 other businesses started the 5 module process. The other modules in the BMP are Soil Health, Grazing Land Management, Animal Health and Animal Welfare.

This BMP is grazing industry initiative and was developed by industry, Fitzroy Basin Authority and DAFF, for industry. The process enables producers to assess their management practices and put in place plans to improve them where necessary. This can assist with business productivity and profitability and demonstrate that sustainable and ethical land and animal management practices are used in the grazing lands.

The next presentation of the BMP will be at “Rangeview”, Ravenswood on 7 August. Information days are planned for Pentland on 3 Sept, and Greenvale on 5 Sept.
