Agriculture Victoria to run autumn pasture recovery webinar

By Rodney Woods

Information and practical tips on autumn pasture recovery will be delivered by Agriculture Victoria pasture specialist Fiona Baker during a webinar/phone seminar being held on May 13.

“Our pastures are an investment, and in many cases are ‘recoverable’, despite many years of moisture stress and/or fire damage in some areas,” Ms Baker said.

With 21 years’ experience delivering in the areas of nutrient management, grazing systems, cattle nutrition and feed budgeting, as well as running a south Gippsland dairy farm with her husband, Ms Baker will share her insights into how producers can get their pastures to thrive.

During the event, Ms Baker will cover a range of topics including:

● How to determine if pastures are ready for grazing;

● How long to leave stock in the paddock;

● The type of grazing strategy producers should be aiming for;

● How much rest to give a pasture after grazing;

● The specific signs producers should be looking for to determine if their pasture is recoverable.

The ‘Grazing tactics for autumn management’ webinar/phone seminar will be held at 7.30 pm on Wednesday, May 13.
