The project is will be a small scale trial of the rotational grazing setup. The project will construct four goat paddocks; of 14ha, 15ha, 15ha and 20 ha, totalling 64 hectares. Water will be piped approx. 1231 meters from a bore to the trial paddocks. The fencing will be of high integrity goat fencing and include 5 gates and 3 water troughs.
Second part of the trial is dependent on rainfall and weather; we may trial fire, chemical spraying and complete spelling with an aim of killing woody weeds.
South West NRM will be contributing $25,000 to this project, with in kind labour and support from Greg and Toni Sherwin.
