The bad news is the livestock industry has one of the worst safety records in Australia. In 2013/14, 1 in 25 graziers suffered a serious injury – serious enough to take time off work. Look around your community, and imagine 1 in every 25 of your peers being seriously hurt this year.
Graziers from across South West Queensland showed their demand for learning by travelling an average 700km to attend 2.5 days of continual professional development provided by OBE Organic in Charleville last week.
OBE Organic plans to host dedicated organic Grazing Best Management Practices (BMP) forums every six months after a resounding response from producers at the first OBE Organic Grazing BMP forum.

Australia’s oldest organic beef marketing company, OBE Organic, has announced it is partnering with Grazing BMP to deliver what is thought to be the world’s first best management practices program for organic beef producers.
