    Popular Pasture Management Publications Reprinted

    Pasture checklist 2021 front pageRecently, Southern New England Landcare identified a need to reprint three popular publications that have proven so informative and useful to members and friends, that supplies were fully depleted.

    In February 2021, we obtained a National Landcare Program Small Community Grant of $7500 through the Northern Tablelands Local Land Services.

    The grant was used to make small authorised edits, and reproduce copies of these great resources (1 & 2):

    1. Lewis Kahn & Judi Earl (2007), Pasture Management Checklist for The Northern Tablelands of NSW, 3rd Edition, Agricultural Information & Monitoring Services, © Agricultural Information & Monitoring Services, Printed by the University of New England Printery.

    2. Lewis Kahn & Judi Earl (2009), Agricultural Information and Monitoring Services, Grazing Management Fact Sheets:
      • Getting Started – develop a grazing plan
      • Managing plants to increase pasture growth rate
      • Managing pastures improves soil health
      • Stocking rate, stock density & using DSE values to estimate pasture intake.

    3. The third publication, Pasture Plants of the Slopes and Tablelands of NSW: a field guide to the recognition and attributes of 70 plants by Lewis Kahn, Belinda Heard and Wal Whalley (2003), had to be re-digitised after it was discovered the original electronic files had been lost. N.B. Printing of this publication is now awaiting a further small grant. We will advise when it becomes available.

    Southern New England Landcare Ltd would like to thank the National Landcare Program and Northern Tablelands Local Land Services for funding this project. Significant contributions were also made by Professor Wal Whalley, and Professor Lewis Kahn at the University of New England.

    These resources were first prepared using National Landcare Program Grants, and together, they offer graziers in the whole of the Northern Tablelands a set of practical, user-friendly, take-home information from any grazing management related event or any resource shelf.

    To obtain your copy of any of these materials, please contact our office on 02 6772 9123 or email us here.
