NSW Central West & Rangelands

Narrative

The NSW Central West and Rangelands including Qld Sheep is an iconic region encompassing a diversity of livestock enterprises. From Rangeland to mixed farming the region necessitates a multitude of land management activities to enable the continuing sustainability of the region.

Arguably, the rangelands offer the greatest opportunity throughout all regions of Australia to improve the productivity and more importantly profitability of grazing enterprises through improved management of both land and livestock.  To optimise the success of the region’s land managers, it is imperative that the skills of those managers are strengthened by sharing the knowledge and skills of the many successful individuals, and encouraging the adoption of the latest research.
