This project has established investment in infrastructure through fencing and installation of off-stream watering points for stock to better manage the herd, allowing wet season spelling and weed control. This has led to improved land condition and better management of frontage country, with benefits to adjoining wetlands by minimising sediment run-off.
The cost of fencing and off-stream watering points can be offset by increased carrying capacity.
