Default Caring for Our Country grant in the Barkly region

Pastoralists in the Barkly region are looking into new ways to improve grazing techniques.

The Barkly Landcare Conservation Association and pastoralists have joined forces and successfully secured a $302,000 Caring for Our Country grant to investigate new grazing techniques at Beetaloo Station on the Barkly Tablelands.

The Beetaloo Station pilot project will look at how to manage the cattle to increase herd productivity, maintain productive pasture, improve land condition and increase water use efficiency.

Barkly Landcare Conservation Association facilitator Naomi Wilson presented the Association's successful formula to attract funding for important natural resource management projects in the Barkly region at the Territory Natural Resource Management and Landcare Forum in Darwin recently.

The forum showcased natural resource management projects from across the Northern Territory.

Central Australian projects included the removal of Athel pines in the Todd River Catchment, soil conservation, prickle bush control on the Barkly Downs and protecting diversity through indigenous land management.

Territory Natural Resource Management Executive Officer Karen May said the forum was an excellent opportunity for Territorians involved in natural resource management to catch up with their counterparts from across the Territory.

"The Northern Territory National Resource Management and Land care Forum brings people from all over the Territory and from a diverse range of projects together to share stories and learn from one another," Ms May said.
