Get involved in Grazing BMP!
Grazing Best Management Practices (Grazing BMP) is a FREE, industry-led series of modules that allows you to evaluate your business and develop a plan for improvement. You can work through each self-assessment module on your own or in a relaxed workshop setting with other graziers.
The program is an initiative of FBA, AgForce and the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries. Developed in central Queensland, the modules are based on current research, industry knowledge, and input from graziers.
