Carolyn Jenkinson, Senior Land Services Officer from LLS said she is excited about engaging the services of true professionals to run this course, as participants will learn simple, quick and effective ways to monitor their pasture, and will be given the opportunity to explore how this valuable information will improve their grazing business.
"We have held this course in other parts of the region where the feedback from landholders has been very positive."
"The combined research and practical backgrounds of both presenters will provide local landholders with the opportunity to hear about the latest science and how this can be implemented on their properties" said Ms Jenkinson.
