Red cattle grazing in a paddock

If you can’t see it, you can’t plan to eat it

We, in the RCS network, have been talking a lot in the past few months about matching stocking rate to carrying capacity (Regenerative Grazing Principle number 3) and feed budgeting (a planning part of Regenerative Grazing Principle 1- Plan monitor and manage).

The best thing about the GrazingforProfit™ School was having the tools presented to gain success from working on the land. Also, having the battery charged to step out and have a go. Remove all doubt, this course is a good investment, not just for the grazier but any person interested in improving performance on any level will get something from this.

We genuinely care about the well-being of our clients. Since 1985 we have worked with clients to see our vision for agriculture become a reality. RCS exists purely to see happy people running productive, profitable businesses using regenerative management practices that leave the land in a better condition than we started. We work closely with you to help you through the challenges that implementing change can bring. It is the one thing to point out to you that you have a problem or need to improve in a particular area; it is another to be at your side leading and coaching you through the process. That is the RCS difference. We work closely with you to understand the complexity of your individual circumstance and work with you to develop a process to implement improvement that is customised to your unique situation and your ability to handle change. We are committed to developing long-term relationships. We are renowned for our follow up support and become a “part” of most families and management teams we work with. RCS is now starting to work with a large number of 2nd and even 3rd generation clients! RCS has the best clients! We also have a team of experienced and passionate people working across Australia. All of our key delivery people started as RCS clients! It is safe to say we can honestly empathise with you as we do our best to understand your unique circumstances. If you didn’t get amazing value out of working with RCS, we wouldn’t still be here!

If we want significant social change, it’s vitally important we involve our kids.

Smoking became taboo thanks to pressure from our children ("MUM! *Every* cigarette is doing you harm!" Cue big, worried eyes looking up at you👁👁). Recycling is another example ("DAD! You put the alfoil in the wrong bin again! Pfft!" Cue eye roll 🙄).

Now, it seems, regenerative agriculture could be the next big change our kids help implement, thanks to proactive teachers like this. Congratulations Ms Spry and all the teachers picking up this important curriculum!

If your children's school isn't doing this, it's time to put the pressure on them! 👧👦📚🌱

Ever wondered what our Executive Link program can do for your business, land and family? Regen 'agvocate', and one of our faves, Charlie Arnott asks Terry just that. Why? Because Charlie knows just how powerful the program is, and wants you to know, too! They also get to chatting about the current state of ag and making tough decisions. Thanks Charlie Arnott - Grass Fed Beef, Naturally - you're doing wonderful things for the industry!

When asked the question, 'Which is more important in an agricultural business, production or profit?', most people will answer 'profit'. Why is it then, that most conversations and decisions in an agricultural business revolve around production?
