Land management

Land management actions

The LDC team is helping landholders to incorporate a range of improved land management actions to improve productivity and land condition. 

There are many options available to landholders, below are a few of those:

  • fencing and water distribution to better control grazing and improve land condition;
  • installation of whoa boys to reduce erosion on tracks;
  • water distribution infrastructure and water points to control grazing pressure and enable grazing land management change that take pressure off natural water features;
  • permanent paddock fencing to manage pastures or specific erosion features;
  • permanent riparian fencing to protect high-value wetland and waterway areas; and
  • temporary fencing with or without cattle exclusion to improve land condition.

If you are interested in any of the above, or would like to learn more about other practice change options, please contact one of the LDC team members

Projects underway

In February, LDC released an Expression of Interest for landholders to apply for a Sediment Loss Prevention Grant to undertake a project incorporating a range of improved land management and gully erosion actions.

It was a competitive, capped program and proposals were independently assessed based on merit.

Successful applications are now underway, and on-ground works are required to be completed within 12 months of signing contracts.
