Profitable, biodiverse wool production systems for the Northern Tablelands (NSW)

Summary

A significant number of the world’s premium fine woolgrowers operate on New South Wales’ Northern Tablelands, which covers 2.5 million hectares and carries four million sheep. Over 1000 woolgrowers operate in the region, with granite, trap and basalt soil types and predominantly summer rainfall.

Aims

Profitable, biodiverse wool productions systems focused on productive management of native vegetation - an increasing priority for the region’s woolgrowers. The project aimed to develop solutions to natural resource management issues such as native tree dieback, unpalatable invasive weeds, gully erosion, compromised riparian vegetation and water quality, vertebrate pests and a decline in biodiversity, all of which have the potential to impact on farm productivity and profitability.
