Southern Gulf NRM and our neighbours Northern Gulf Resource Management Group collaborate in the Tropical Savannah Grazing Program. A key deliverable of this program is the Savannah Plan project, delivered under a funding agreement by the Beef Extension Team in the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries.
Under Savannah Plan, the extension team works closely with cattle producers at the property level to develop property management plans that sustain the economic and environmental viability of the pastoral enterprise. This involves consideration of property infrastructure – watering points, fencing and other assets, herd management practices to maximise herd efficiency and labour inputs and other aspects that contribute to a viable and productive enterprise.
