Wet season presents new opportunities
THE WET season brought many challenges to the Central and North Burnett, but it also presented opportunities with new growth and pastures emerging.
RM Williams Australian Bush Learning Centre will host a workshop on May 17 from 9am-3pm to identify ways to make the most of the thick growth that has come through after flooding.
The discussions will focus on pasture recovery after flooding, pasture identification and managing the healthy growth for livestock production, as well as weeds, soil and erosion issues.
Land managers now have the opportunity to make the most of the healthy growth in preparation for the coming dry and cool season.
BCCA grazing project officer Veronica Chapman said there was no doubt there had been plenty of challenges from the rain and floods this summer.
“But there’s a silver lining and some good growth can help us get back on our feet for the coming seasons,” she said.
Senior beef extension officer Damien O’Sullivan and sown pastures agronomist Stuart Buck, of the Queensland Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, will be joined by land protection officers and soil conservation specialists from North Burnett Regional Council.
