Trees in Grazing Systems – Field day

RCS Field Days are an opportunity for like-minded people to gather on a property to discuss topics relevant to that region and see firsthand how RCS principles are being applied in similar land types and production systems. We encourage you to invite neighbours, staff, family and friends as everyone is welcome.

This free field day is an education and demonstration day at Moora Plains, Gogango to demonstrate long term benefits of trees in grazing systems, including biodiversity and soil carbon.

Hear from landholders Andrew and Meagan Lawrie on their experience regenerating native trees in their grazing operation at Moora Plains, Gogango. See what results they have achieved increasing productivity and the co-benefits they are finding from their balanced landscape with native trees.

Discussion Topics

  • The role of trees in landscape and benefits to production systems
  • How to manage a healthy balance between grass and trees
  • Co-benefits of restoring biodiversity
