Making Great Grazing Decisions

Making Great Grazing Decisions

By David McLean, Chairman at RCS Australia

Recently, I joined MaiaGrazing’s Bart Davidson and Mystery Park’s Ainsley McArthur on a webinar – The Right Call: Critical Decision Making for Profitable Grazing. During the session, I challenged the “old way of thinking” by underlining how good decision-making is key to good management. A summary of what we covered includes:

  • How to find confidence in decision-making
  • What impact our decisions have on the land, livestock, business and people
  • The key elements of decision-making: meaningful information and goals/direction
  • The importance of converting data into information that can drive profit, such as using MaiaGrazing for grazing plans and forecasting
  • The 6 principles of Regenerative Grazing

There was also a range of questions asked during the session. I’ll update this blog post with responses to them soon.

Lastly, over the next few weeks we’ll share more about our online learning courses on the RCS Global Learning Hub and extend a special RCS + MaiaGrazing offer that supports your journey towards being a better critical decision maker. Meanwhile, you can learn more about the key principles of grazing by enrolling in my free class here, or speak to a MaiaGrazing expert to book a demonstration.
