BBB graziers have many
opportunities for training
THE list of training opportunities available to landholders in the Bowen, Broken, Bogie catchment area through the Landholders Driving Change project is extensive.
And, even if the training you’re after is not listed, the LDC team is very happy to investigate any suggestion and to tailor training to suit each property’s unique needs.
There is no limit to the amount of training each grazier or landholder in the BBB can access during the three-year life of the LDC project.
Funding for the training is also available through the project. All you have to do is ask.
