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.
- Graze planning – plant phases and rest periods and optimising good weight gain.
- Pasture cropping and alternative inputs.
- Controlling regrowth trees with time control grazing.
