RCS Keep in Touch days are an opportunity for like-minded people to gather on a property to discuss topics relevant to that region and see firsthand how RCS principles are being applied in similar land types and production systems. We encourage you to invite neighbours, staff, family and friends as everyone is welcome.

Discussion Topics

1. Irrigating sown pasture.

2. Grazing sown irrigated pasture for profit.

3. Profitable water use.

Brief History

The Poole Family has been in grazing for 40 years. Chris managed a grazing property in Longreach district and is now Senior Grazing Field Officer with NQ Dry Tropics. Illabunda was purchased in early 2023 to drought proof cashflow. The plan is to graze irrigated pastures and have the option to cut hay as season and market suit.
