Welcome to the
      Central Gippsland BeefCheque Group


This discussion group is the amalgamation of three groups (Flynn, Glengarry and Central Gippsland) that completed the BeefCheque course.

BeefCheque is a three year course about growing more grass, utilising more grass, growing more beef and ultimately making more money. Participants also gain a greater understanding of drought tolerant and summer action perennials, as well as managing and maximising water usage. This invaluable program delves into the interaction between pasture & livestock and the principles behind improving the management of both.

Membership to the Central Gippsland BeefCheque group is open to all and the meetings for the year can be found below. If you have an interest in joining or attending a particular session please email me to add your name to the mailing list and receive details on how to get to the meeting venue. The meetings usually occur at 9:30am on the third or fourth Friday of the month.
