Project Description

BMRG’s “Better Beef for the Reef” project aims to accelerate the adoption rate of improved grazing management practices and contribute to better water quality outcomes for the Great Barrier Reef.

The project particularly targets graziers who have not previously participated in Natural Resource Management programs.  Priority areas include the Lower Baffle, Lower Kolan, Lower Burnett and Lower Burrum Basins. Download the map of “Better Beef for the Reef” priority areas.

Participating graziers are provided with a suite of one-on-one extension and support measures to assist them in benchmarking their current management practices and developing plans to improve their farms’ profitability and sustainability.

The project also funds the establishment of demonstration sites to showcase optimal grazing practices through a series of workshops and field days.

The Better Beef for the Reef project is funded through the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection.
