As a grazier, are you starting to question the value and merits of continually applying inputs into your grazing system? Fertiliser, chemicals and diesel do you know if they are returning your business a suitable return on investment?
Or perhaps, you have a fully developed, productive grazing system but as yet have not seen the same lifts in stocking rate, grass productivity and livestock performance as you expected to pay for your $ and time investment.
Or, you’re at a ‘fork in the road’ and you’re asking yourself “which way to go” – spend capital on inputs to drive my grazing businesses profitability or adopt a low cost, lower input approach.
If this is you, then you could well benefit from “A Date with Dick Richardson”…
and add some other low cost grazing tools to your ‘grazing management toolkit’ as well as ‘farm inputs’…

Having run his own grazing business in South Africa and had more than 20 years’ experience in training, facilitating and consulting farming businesses around the world, including the US, UK, Australia and Africa, Dick is adept at driving grass production and grass utilisation though (low cost) ‘ecological’ ways. In South Africa, Dick did not have access to diesel, dollars, machinery and fertiliser, so his approach to improving his grazing business was one of implementing low cost, ecological changes to grazing management (that repay big $s – the so called ‘low hanging fruit’). This is what Dick will bring to these days.
Perhaps by attending one of our days, it too will be an opportunity for you to add some “low cost” grazing management tools to your grazing management ‘toolbox’ that will have a big impact on grass growth, utilisation and livestock performance.
$50 per person; $75 per two people, same business, assists with our catering costs and our costs of bringing Dick to SA. Please find a registration form attached and contact details for further information.
