This is an advanced course that will develop your skills in grazing planning and control. The training uses Maia Grazing and/or a Spreadsheet to demonstrate the practice and calculations involved in the creation of sound plans.

What are our customers saying?
Farmer - Deep Creek, South Australia
Grazing Naturally has helped us bring a lot of knowledge we had into one management system. We now have a much better understanding of our influence on the landscape and animals. And what is best of all is it is continually adapting with us.
Very good course, will be looking to implement this on our farm this year. Much of the learning hits home with me as we have been using Holistic Planned Grazing on our place for 15 years and have seen production plateau after 4-5 years of the same management.
I thouroughly enjoyed this course. Heaps to take in and get my mind around as I review the printed material and the videos I pick up more.

This is terrific! Thankyou. It is something I can implement in a short amount of time.
