Cattle are an effective tool to reduce bushfire riskl
Cattle are an effective tool to reduce bushfire risk, and can be integrated into regulated vegetation regeneration carbon projects to achieve this. Most of the 2019/2020 Australian bushfires occurred in National Parks and were so extreme due to vegetation...
Increase both agricultural productivity and ecological health
An effective way to increase both agricultural productivity and ecological health is to slow surface water flow. This can be done in numerous different ways, however the most effective way on barren landscapes is to build 'moon shaped' holes to retain the water. Not...
The Carbon Gold Rush
Having originally come from a cattle station in central QLD, agriculture and cattle farming wasn’t new to me when I was first introduced to the carbon farming industry. I was already 5 years into my professional career as an environmental scientist and advisor, working mainly in the resource mining sector. Considering I didn’t do too well at chemistry in UNI, I essentially didn’t even properly understand what carbon was or how it worked in conjunction with agriculture and the landscape. When I took on my first job as a carbon farming officer, it changed the course of my entire career, and it was an experience I’ll carry with me for the rest of my life.

How can it be used to improve soil health and fix eroded gullies like this one shown in the photo?
