Successful and sustainable pasture management requires skill, experience and flexibility. At Yalandra we are the third generation of farmers and have an intimate knowledge of the care that is required for farming in this climate.
We aim for the best balance for production, quality of Wagyu, animal welfare and sustainable management of the environment.
Some of the sustainable farming methods adopted by Yalandra Pastoral Company can include the following;
We using our own ‘worm juice’ as fertilizer and dung beetles as soil aids (natural intervention methods).
We manage soil compaction and methane emission with flexible grazing arrangements.
We are managing our waterways by keeping them clean and healthy as possible.
We have seen these methods improve our pastoral land over time. We have enhanced the biodiversity and improved pasture. This has resulted in a reduced need for chemical fertilizers, pesticides, insecticides. And reduced soil erosion and created a greater drought resistance.
Our approach towards farming practices is based upon the health of our lands biodiversity. Biodiversity is a natural cycle that involves a variety of living things.
We are enhancing the health of our biodeversity by promoting healthy soil. We do this by nutrient recycling, retaining and restoring native vegetation, controlling pests, weeds and diseases. And managing our pastures and waterways.
We have become a complimentary factor within the biodiversity and its fruitful ecosystem.
Yalandra Pastoral Company varies there grazing regime on native, re-vegetated, introduced grasses and supplementary feeding as required.
We vary stock levels according to the environmental needs of each particular section of pasture, and the health of the surrounding biodiversity.
We have subdivide sections of this pasture for perennial cropping and grazing. Selected species of perennial pasture are valued for their high quality feeding value and ability to improve soil fertility through nitrogen fixation.
