Graeme Hand manages a farm in Western Victoria and is a well known expert on establishing profitable farming systems through the adoption of regenerative practices.
This is a great opportunity for land holders in this region to attend a workshop with Graeme and gain an overview on profitable, regenerative management practices aimed at improving the health of your stock, pastures and your land while increasing profit and managing your workload. A particular focus will be on grazing management techniques that focus on 'rest time' and 'stock management' that adds value to your land as well as your hip pocket!
Topics will include an explanation of water, energy and mineral cycling and how they relate to ecological health and sustainable production. Graeme will discuss the principles of how increasing biodiversity improves land health and its relevance to plant succession, state and transition, pasture assessment, and fodder budgeting. In the afternoon Graeme will lead a pasture walk on a nearby recently established Grazing Management trial site and explain how to monitor land regeneration along with being able to identify the early warning indicators of animal health and land change.
