Proud to work with CHRRUP as a delivery partner

We’re proud to have supported landholders in the Belyando, Cape Campaspe and Suttor catchments to improve soil health and pasture over the past four years. This is thanks to our delivery partner, CHHRUP.

Thirteen workshops, each often attracting more than 20 participants, were conducted by the Regenerative Grazing Tools for Burdekin Soils and Pastures project during the past four years.

This project is supported by NQ Dry Tropics and delivered by CHHRUP through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program. CHHRUP is based in Emerald, and has a strong track record of providing access to training, and delivering projects to support on-ground outcomes.

The workshops were hosted on properties across the Belyando, Cape Campaspe and Suttor catchments.They focused on soil health and pasture in agricultural landscapes on grazing enterprises as well as other farming systems.

Topics like Landscape Rehydration, Grazing and Fire Management, Soil Biology, Forage Budgeting using the STAC method and via Satellite Imagery, and Animal Health and Nutrition were discussed at the workshops.

Single and multiple day events were held with guest speakers from Queensland, South Australia and New South Wales presenting valuable information either in person or online.

Presenters included grazing consultant Dick Richardson from Nature’s Equity; David Hardwick from Soil Land Food; Sam Skeat from The Mulloon Institute; Jim Wade from Wade Agricultural Consultants and Phil Tickle from Cibo Labs.

By attracting sizeable crowds, the project enabled producers across Queensland to gain the necessary knowledge to take the next step in sustainable land management.
