Move to rotational grazing is a sustainable choice on Dumbarton Station


Move to rotational grazing - Dumbarton Station

Winemaker turned grazier Brian McGuigan decided the most profitable and sustainable management approach on his Dumbarton Station property near Middlemount in central Queensland was a move to rotational grazing. He divided his large paddocks into smaller sections and combined with changes in herd management, such as resting paddocks to allow seed to set, he has improved carrying capacity and land condition. Brian received some assistance to make changes via a Reef Rescue water quality improvement grant provided by Fitzroy Basin Association, funded under the Australian Government's Caring for our Country program.
