Healthy Grazing Country Indicators is a publication explaining the value of native plants and animals on grazing properties.

"The aim of this booklet is not to provide landholders with any hard and fast rules, but to compliment or build on the knowledge they already have about a particular native plant or animal. This booklet describes the benefits that these plants or animals bring to a property and the links they provide in maintaining a sustainable grazing enterprise that endures seasons."

The publication includes a number of different native species and outlines the following headings:

  • What do they look like?
  • Where do they live?
  • What do they need to live, eat and breed?
  • When might I see (or hear) them?
  • What management actions affect this species?
  • How do they benefit the land I manage?
  • Similar Species
