Walk through local paddocks identifying grasses, legumes & forbs, & share insights into pasture management including learning how to complete a forage budget. Conduct a riparian assessment and learn ways to maintain riparian areas.
You will travel by bus in air-conditioned comfort. As field sessions may involve walking up to 500m through paddocks and wooded areas, walking shoes, long trousers, hat, sunscreen, and a water bottle are recommended. Participants must have the capacity to walk through paddocks and stand for reasonable periods, however, walking will not be arduous nor on particularly steep grades.
