Listen to Graeme as he discusses the nuts and bolts of holistic management including perennial pasture assessment and regeneration, native grasses, animal health and performance.
In this video, Graeme is clear that farmers must focus on maintaining full ground cover at all times. Is this possible? Yes, over time with correct management.
However should a farmer not choose to farm biologically we are told that the choice ultimately will be foist upon him as the land deteriorates and the costs of farming rise.
There are signs both in the paddock and in the animal that once learnt are easy to observe and which assist with managing your farm holistically and with more rewarding results.
