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.

Discussion Topics

  • Building country health for drought preparedness
  • Matching stocking rate to carrying capacity
  • Resting country

Brief History

As a 2009 GrazingforProfit school graduate, Dave Lyons visited Graham Finalyson’s property in 2010 which promoted Dave to commence healing Weeallah.  From this time on, Dave applied long term work to match his stocking rate with carrying capacity, starting with rotational grazing and rest, then from 2019 he added more intensive grazing management methods during the peak of the drought in his area.  Dave aligns his thinking with that of Walter Jehne – checking for good roots!
