The RCS Regenerative Goal: To profitably leave our country in better condition.
The objectives of regenerative grazing (e.g. time control grazing) are to manage the ecosystem with grazing animals to maximise the ecological rebuilding of biodiversity, water and nutrient cycling and energy efficiency within the local ecosystem.
Through extensive research, observations and trial and error, RCS has developed the following six principles of regenerative grazing, which are essential for a successful grazing operation. The first iteration of these principles were developed by Dr Terry McCosker after completing a Churchill Fellowship looking at what key principles resulted in grazing successes and grazing failures around the world in 1990.
