RCS Grazing Clinic – Bourke, NSW

March 8 - March 10

The RCS Grazing Clinic is a practical hands-on workshop that develops your skills as a grass manager.

This power-packed two and a half-day clinic will give you the confidence and practical know-how to go home and begin implementing. The RCS Grazing Clinic covers the principles and practices of grazing management, including how to design and manage a grazing cell and how to use grazing charts as a planning and decision-making tool.

The course has a complete focus on implementation. We deal with the “real-life stuff” that actually counts when it comes to getting the most out of your land, livestock and business.

During the RCS Grazing Clinic, our facilitator will cover;

  • How to assess rest period and calculate graze period
  • How to match stocking rate to carrying capacity
  • How to use grazing charts to plan and make confident decisions
  • The 6 principles of Regenerative Grazing Management
  • Property design, water design and fence planning
  • Questions and answers
What to bring

You’ll be shown how to get started with a grazing plan and grazing monitoring using a simple planning spreadsheet on a computer at this clinic.
