10th Annual Innovative Grazing Forum

April 18 @ 9:00 am - April 20 @ 6:00 pm

Reef Catchments presents the 10th Annual Innovative Grazing Forum. Join us to observe, innovate and integrate your planned grazing.

Planned Grazing is powerful observation, integrating innovation to create positive outcomes

Grab your hat and notebook and get ready for three days packed full of progressive learnings, experiences and demonstrations to inspire and invigorate your grazing management! Reef Catchments is excited to have you join our 2023 Innovative Grazing Forum as we continue to support landholders, industry partners, extension providers and stakeholders as natural resource managers for the Mackay Whitsunday Isaac regions.

This year’s Forum marks the 10th year we bring together great minds to support and evolve our regions’ grazing. This event offers opportunities to improve landscape, production quality and quantity, to network, share knowledge and innovations to reduce nutrient runoff through our waterways and eventually to the Great Barrier Reef.

We are excited to welcome Dick Richardson to the region as our keynote speaker, who will be supported by presentations from Mike Taylor – 2022 Farmer of the Year, Jim Fletcher and Lara Landsberg – DAF, Carlos Bueno – Reef Catchments and the team at Gallagher. At the conference day we also have an inspiring line-up of stallholders across the three days and offer plenty of time to connect with industry specialists, network with other graziers and to discover ways to invigorate your grazing enterprise. With two field days sandwiched around the conference day, you will discover methods and practical ideas on integrating innovation into your grazing management.

BUS TRANSPORT will be available to and from the second Field Day, held near Bowen. Registration for the bus will start at 06:30am for a 06:45am departure from Reef Catchments, Peel Street, Mackay.

DAILY EVENT LOCATIONS will be provided at confirmation of your reservation.


This year’s event requests a small payment of $20 for each daily ticket. Funds raised through ticket sales will support the purchase of FIVE DELEGATE PRIZES, each to the value of $800. Attendance at the event is an eligibility requirement for the prize draw. If for some reason you are unable to attend the event, contact the organiser prior to the day to receive a full refund of your ticket cost.
