Workshop series to inform landholders how to use the landscape to be more productive

Landholders will be able to gain valuable insights into landscape management options that will help to increase productivity through a workshop series that is being held in the Western region later in May 2019.

The grazing naturally workshops, which are being coordinated by Western Local Land Services, will also demonstrate to landholders how better landscape management can improve the properties natural resource base, provide greater biodiversity and enhance the resilience of the property.
