RBST has launched a new Lantra accredited 2-day Advanced Conservation Grazing in Practice course, providing experienced graziers with a comprehensive insight into some of the more advanced aspects of conservation grazing, including grazing ecology, physiology and designing complex grazing strategies and systems.

The aim is to enable delegates to understand livestock and their role in conservation, as well as biodiversity management.

This course will provide delegates with the knowledge and skills required to increase their understanding of livestock and their role in conservation, particularly the importance of large herbivores in managing biodiversity and their influence on natural processes. There is a focus on different habitats and how livestock can be used in each of them. Delegates will gain an understanding of conservation grazing systems, how to identify the risks and benefits associated with grazing and develop an understanding of the complexities of grazing regimes and their application.

In addition, the course identifies the responsibilities and liabilities associated with keeping livestock, both towards the animals themselves in terms of promoting their health and welfare and towards the people with whom they come into contact, such as stock handlers and the public at large.  

The course is suitable for those already involved in conservation grazing looking to further enhance their knowledge. The type of attendee can include but is not limited to landowners, farmers, graziers, smallholders, rangers, site managers, ecologists etc.

The course fee is £399 +vat pp (includes lunch on both days, unless otherwise stated) 

This course is also available for group bookings of a minimum of 10 delegates and a maximum of 15 (group bookings to provide venue, livestock and catering). 

RBST is quality Assured by Lantra as an approved training provider. All our courses are accredited by Lantra and delivered by Lantra registered instructors.
