Grazing Best Management Practices (BMP) is an online, self-assessment tool that allows graziers to benchmark their current grazing and business practice against an industry-developed set of standards. It allows graziers to identify opportunities and develop a plan to improve their business performance, and have access to relevant information and support to achieve your plan.
The program was developed by Fitzroy Basin Association (FBA), AgForce Queensland and the Queensland Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (QDAFF) along with a producer reference group, and is supported by the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection (DEHP).
In development since 2009, the program uses the same framework as the successful myBMP Cotton and Grains BMP. After technical input from QDAFF grazing extension staff, each of the 156 benchmark questions across five modules have been developed and piloted by a panel of producers.
The Grazing BMP is needed to:
- Deliver best management principles to the grazing industry
- Collate this information to demonstrate good land stewardship and improvement in practices to the wider community.
