Stock and Waterways: A NSW Manager’s Guide:
Staton, J. & O’Sullivan, J. (2019).

Come and join us on the 22nd of May at the Goulburn Club for a community conversation about managing stock and waterways.  We will be  sharing with you our new Stock and Waterways: A NSW Manager’s Guide publication, which we have developed along with our partners Water NSW.  The Guide is filled with practical information, great photos, and stories from landholders who have put in place time saving, economic, and environmentally friendly ways to manage stock on their farms.

Why have a conversation?

We want to have a conversation about what we have learnt from the landholders and water managers we worked with to prepare the guide, as well as to say thankyou to our existing Rivers of Carbon landholders by giving them a free copy of the guide!  We also want to provide an opportunity for anyone interested in finding out more about how they can manage stock around waterways to come along and hear about the incentives available for  fencing, off stream watering, rotational grazing and stock crossings through the Rivers of Carbon Program.  Our friends from South-east Local Land Services and Landcare will also be with us to let you know what they are doing in the region to help landholders do this important work.

Our presenters are practically minded people who value rivers, creeks, dams and wetlands for environmental, economic and social values.   Topics to be covered will include why managing stock is important, how the guide has been developed and who has been involved, landholder perspectives and insights on working with Rivers of Carbon to manage stock around waterways and, as an extra treat, we also have Antia Brademann talking about fish friendly farms.  Antia will share her experience and practical efforts in restoring farm dams and waterways so that they can support native fish populations.

Refreshments will be served after the presentations so there is plenty of time for lots of great conversations.

Our line up of presenters are:

Siwan Lovett
Project manager for the Stock and Waterways project, Siwan will talk about the process of developing the Guide with authors Jillian Staton and Jenny O’Sullivan.
