Last Friday McKinlay Shire Council and Southern Gulf NRM hosted National Agriculture Day in Julia Creek. It was a great day for our Producers to come together to celebrate the industry which is so important to Australia. 💚

So, on this AgDay help us celebrate that in fact, we are all a part of the same cycle, all moving in the same direction.

Southern Gulf NRM

Last week Southern Gulf NRM held a series of ‘Managing Cattle for Productivity, Profitability and the Carbon Market’ workshops in Normanton, Cloncurry and Richmond. Presenters included carbon industry experts Julien Gastaldi - Natural Carbon, Gary Wyatt - Corporate Carbon, Rowan Foley - Aboriginal Carbon Foundation and Charlie Hawkins, independent carbon consultant, as well as Michael Wellington from Bush AgriBusiness and Paul McDougall from Paraway Pastoral Company.

These workshops aimed to have participants gain an improved understanding of the carbon market, have their concerns heard and addressed to assist in gaining broader community participation, and provide participants the opportunity to voice their opinion regarding a proposed Herd Aggregation Model. Overall, they were a huge success with the 53 attendees providing feedback essential to the design of the Herd Aggregation Model. The Herd Aggregation Model is designed to allow producers with fewer than 50,000 head of cattle join together to participate in the carbon market in a financially feasible way, and simultaneously serves to reduce paperwork, risks and time costs.

For those unable to attend, the workshops were video-recorded and will be released on the Southern Gulf NRM YouTube page in the coming days. Keep an eye out! We are always happy to welcome participants at any time! #normanton #cloncurry #richmondqld

These workshops were funded through the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program and the Queensland Government’s Land Restoration Fund.
