'Rangelands Living Skin’ is a new project led by NSW Department of Primary Industries and funded by Meat & Livestock Australia, recognising the importance of productivity and resilience in our rangelands. A collaboration between producers, researchers, educators and industry, the project... will create an evidence base to support local agriculture. .

One of the four core producer enterprises in the project is Bokhara Plains, managed by Graham and Cathy Finlayson (see their Soils for Life case study here https://bit.ly/2R3Tywp). The Finlaysons have been working on innovative rangeland practices for over 20 years, focusing on improving their ecology which is the foundation of their business. These management practices improve environmental condition, livestock productivity and business performance. Read more about the project here: https://soilsforlife.org.au/rangelands-living-skin/

The Henderson family of Colodan are reaping the benefits of incorporating agroforestry and carbon farming into their cattle enterprise, watch here: https://youtu.be/wC82XwqHP5k

Located east of the Great Dividing Range in the Rawbelle district, around 260 km west of Bundaberg, Colodan is owned and managed by fourth generation farmers, James and Kylie Henderson. They have always taken a forward thinking and evolving approach to agriculture, however they made big changes to ...their management and became more ecologically focussed following the devastation of the Millennium Drought during the early 2000s. They have broadened their enterprise mix to include agroforestry, carbon farming as well as cattle production and are reaping the benefits. Learn more:https://soilsforlife.org.au/colodan/
