Overall observations included:

  • stocking rates are about half of what they would normally be
  • grass budgets had allowed more comfortable trades
  • early decisions gave you more options
  • looking at dams was a good indicator of health of soils and ground cover
  • despite recent rainfall, most felt they were not out of drought yet
  • it's good to have a plan
  • opportunities for multi species cropping
  • people were keen to engage and discuss the next month's priorities
  • 'Fire Country How Indigenous Fire Management Could Help Save Australia' by Victor Steffensen
