Join ANU, Mid Lachlan Landcare and Achieve Ag Consultancy for a practical and informative morning looking at fodder shrubs and shelter, including:

  • What is the nutritional value of saltbush?

The property has several salt bush sites and shelterbelts established since 1992.

  • Sustainable Farms ecologist Dan Florance will discuss the local research that has been undertaken on tree plantings in the area and the biodiversity and productivity benefits of these.
  • Mid Lachlan Landcare will be on hand to discuss the new Superb Parrot project and what it will hope to achieve in the area.
  • Wendy Gill from Achieve Ag Consultancy will explore the grazing and productivity benefits of fodder shrubs such as saltbush.
