Implementing grazing best management practice through demonstrating how timely management decisions enhance pastures, groundcover, soils, land condition, business profitability and adaptability.
Managing cattle production in the rangelands of northern Queensland is a challenging job. E-Beef Smart Farming in Northern Queensland aims to support producers by showing how technology can support timely management decisions that enhance pastures, groundcover, soils, land condition, business profitability and adaptability.
E-Beef Smart Farming in Northern Queensland will establish on-ground, regionally relevant smart farms using innovative technology to enhance grazing management.
The project will include a comprehensive extension program to accelerate the uptake of whole-of-business grazing best management that when adopted will
improve the natural resource base and profitability of beef enterprises. Extension professionals will partner with collaborators to maximize impact and ensure industry relevance.
Graziers will have the opportunity to see, touch and discuss the application of new and innovative technologies that will improve their grazing and land management, profitability and adaptability at demonstration E-Beef
Smart Farms and E-Beef innovation hubs.
E-Beef Smart Farming in Northern Queensland project is led by Southern Gulf NRM partnering with Desert Channels Queensland, Northern Gulf Resource Management Group, and the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries. This project is funded under the Australian Government’s Smart Farming Partnerships program, administered by the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources.
