Support for Ladies in Livestock

The Ladies in Livestock program delivers hands-on practical skills to women as independent land stewards with a keen interest in agriculture, to work and make decisions on properties. The program is run by Northern Tablelands Local Land Services and is funded through the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program. The group meetings provide a supportive learning environment, where members can ask questions that they may not be inclined to during mixed field days or workshops.
The popular Ladies in Livestock groups have been established in Guyra, Inverell, Tenterfield and Walcha, and are attended by a diverse range of women with various experiences to share. All women are invited to participate, and meeting times are decided by each group, with allowances being made for school run times and school holidays.

The group meetings cover a range of topics that are tailored to the majority interest and relevant production and include, but not limited to:

  • animal health and management
  • marketing options
  • financial planning
  • paddock preparation
  • pasture selection and identification
  • weed identification and biosecurity management.

Further information is available in the Ladies in Livestock video and anyone interested in joining a group can contact Northern Tablelands Local Land Services on 1300 795 299.
