Measuring carbon at the farmgate brings dividends

Mudgegonga cattle and seedstock producer Julian Carroll has one long-term goal among his targets for measuring carbon emissions within the production process – gaining preferential access to markets for his high-end, high marbling feedlot Angus steers by identifying their carbon footprint.

Mr Carroll will be one of the speakers at next month’s Farming Carbon 2023 Conference, which will be hosted at the George Kerferd Hotel Beechworth on Tuesday, 28 February 2023 between 9.30am and 4.30pm.

The conference, which aims to meet a growing need to promote awareness of what carbon farming is all about, is supported by North East Catchment Management Authority (CMA) with funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.

Farming Carbon conference explores soils, trees, productivity, contracts and accounting

Carbon can be confusing, and there are many options for farmers to engage in carbon markets, many of which are still evolving.

Next month’s Farming Carbon 2023 Conference, which will be hosted at the George Kerferd Hotel Beechworth on Tuesday, 28 February 2023 between 9.30am and 4.30pm, meets a growing need to promote awareness of what carbon farming is all about.


Australian Institute for Alpine Studies Symposium

In mid-December the North East Catchment Management Authority attended the Australian Institute for Alpine Studies Symposium to share research related to Mountain Pygmy-possum Recovery in the Victorian Alps.

The symposium was held in Jindabyne, and was opened by Gnublum-John Dixon (Ngario elder) sharing a welcome to country and smoke ceremony using various types of eucalyptus leaves, each releasing a distinct smell and smoke.

The symposium was well attended with presenters and participants arriving from Victoria, NSW, and the ACT, all contributing to a packed agenda of sessions related to:

  • Caring for mountain ecosystems
  • Mountain plant ecology
  • Mountain fauna
  • Mountain soils and hydrology
