Grants available to improve productivity through land management
Bowen Broken Bogie (BBB) catchment graziers are eligible to apply for grants of up to $30,000 to improve grazing land management for productivity and water quality outcomes.
Grants are available to help landholders improve productivity and land condition that will lead to greater resilience and improved water quality.
Land management actions include (but are not limited to):
- new watering points to help landholders spread grazing pressure more evenly by allowing pasture to be spelled;
- smaller paddocks to give graziers more options to protect sensitive or degraded areas through spelling; and
- permanent riparian fencing to protect high-value wetland and waterway areas.
A wide range of ongoing training and support is available to help project participants to bring their overall plans to fruition.
An LDC team member will help graziers complete the application and advise on applicable land management actions to ensure projects have best chance of success.
Fencing into smaller paddocks gives graziers more control over grazing pressure in sensitive areas.
