Guest speaker at the meeting was Alison Elvin, who talked about resilient native grasses as a core part of any grazing system. She referred the following booklet that many of the graziers attending were interested in: “Managing Native Pastures for Agriculture and Conservation” by Langford, Simpson, Garden, Eddy, Keys, Rehwinkel, Johnston.
Alison also recommends people search ‘Evergraze’ research on-line – they have a wealth of practical information on grazing strategies to maximise native pastures and minimise input costs while still turning a tidy profit.
