Livestock regenerate land
Ecologically and economically, grasslands are one of our nation's greatest natural assets. Approximately 60% of the land surface of Australia or 460 million ha is grassland and grazing livestock is the primary land use across this area. Grasses and grasslands evolved with grazing animals and need to be grazed for optimum health. Unfortunately due to inappropriate management most grasslands are degraded, with production less than optimal. Grazing livestock in tune with natural cycles regenerates land and improves pasture production, biodiversity, water cycling, nutrient cycling and soil health. A point we're setting out to prove here on "Glen Orton".
