Funder: NSW – Local Land Services
Grant Background: The ground cover incentive project will assist landholders to prevent degradation of natural resources by ensuring that adequate ground cover is maintained across their property during periods of drought and adverse seasonal conditions.
The project provides training and financial assistance to land managers to construct farm infrastructure (confinement feeding areas) that will improve grazing management and ground cover outcomes.
Confinement feeding areas are carefully selected spaces set up to hold, feed and water livestock at high stocking rates. These areas enable maintenance or improvement of ground cover levels and reduce environmental degradation.
Funding is available to contribute towards the construction of confinement feeding areas. The following activities can be funded: Water troughs, pipe and fittings, fencing materials, non-portable feeders, shade cloth shelters and trees (other infrastructure may be approved upon application and negotiation with LLS staff).
