Pest Plants & Animals
Weeds and feral animals are a concern to most landholders due to loss of productivity and the effects on stock. The Goulburn Murray Landcare Network aims to assist with the control of weeds and feral animals on public or private land by offering advice and support for funding. We are involved in mapping and control of weeds in certain areas.
We present and attend field days in the Region on request and promote Landcare, encourage Best Management Practices for farms and encourage sustainable farm management.
