As our climate becomes more variable the need to modify grazing systems will become even more important .

Combining fodder shrubs and native grasses will provide a long-term grazing advantage during drought times.

Design, layout, spacing between rows and plants, species, plant management, water availability and grazing times are essential if the full potential of this opportunity is realised.
