Description

Are you happy with the state of your paddocks?

Are you unsure about how to make positive change in a cost effective manner?

Then come along to our farm in Glastonbury for this informative field workshop!

We will discuss how and why we are using our livestock to make progressive improvements to our soil’s ability – to hold more water, grow more grass and ultimately grow more livestock… in our case cows!

This is the perfect workshop for you if you have been wondering where and how to start your farming venture.

This half-day workshop will consist of a detailed learning discussion, followed by practical demonstration.

Good hats, sturdy boots/shoes & small water bottle are strongly advised as you will be required to walk around the property.

Cold drinking water will also be available at the property.

About Your Hosts: Warren and Karen – CGL Beef

Born farmers, and loving it, we are all about eco-friendly farming! Both Warren and Karen grew up on family farms in the Gympie region and between them they proudly represent seven generations of Australian farming families.

Like so many families we want to know what we eat.  For years we’d enjoyed our own delicious beef knowing exactly how it was treated, what it ate, where it had lived…we thought for sure other families wanted that peace of mind so we started selling directly to the public. So we started CGL Beef.  That was back in 2010 and we’re still here!”

We all know the global environment has seen better days. The CGL Beef team know that raising livestock with the correct management can actually help improve the current state of play.

Warren and Karen understand the importance of soil health and study the works of Alan Savory, Joel Salatin and Dr Christine Jones. They know that what is good for the soil is good for growing livestock and ultimately growing healthy people.
