Landscape Management Advice for the Pastoral Industry

Paying for advice that saves you money in the long-term, is like buying time...

SOIL: Nature's own long-term high-interest bank account...
We offer practical advice on the management of this core asset.

Our service focuses on:
  • Increasing back-paddock production
  • Reclaiming country that conventional rangeland wisdom considers to be "useless" or "damaged beyond repair"
  • Maximizing the profit on cull animals
  • Drought-proofing
  • Creek rehabilitation

In all three cases we use biology as a management-tool.

Out in the field where we score our marks, we rely on unorthodox rangeland experience dating back to the nineteen-sixties... We use what seems to work best and adapt our management to achieve the desired results; we take pride in keeping abreast with cutting edge technology and up-to-date information.

The Pastoral Industry in the business of building soil.

In the academic arena where we clash with conventional wisdom, we rely on our own results and on the results of others. We back up uncommon good sense with observation, experimentation and continued learning.

The Kachana Pastoral Company Goal includes the export of highest quality, organically grown “Kachana Happy Beef”, but to do so on a sustainable basis we first need to reach a level of productivity that is commercially feasible to sustain...
