Northern cattle producers: can money be made from the Emissions Reduction Fund?

Beef Central, 14/07/2015


Meat & Livestock Australia, with support from the Australian Department of the Environment, has investigated the opportunities available to major Australian pastoral companies to participate in the the Government’s Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF).

The project examined five different methods for livestock producers to earn carbon credits:

  1. reducing livestock emissions
  2. increasing efficiency of fertiliser use
  3. enhancing carbon in agricultural soils
  4. managing savanna wildfires
  5. sequestering carbon through vegetation and reforestation.
This webinar will inform livestock producers about:
  • the opportunities in the ERF
  • how carbon markets work
  • how livestock producers can earn extra income from participating in the ERF.
Guest presenters
Join carbon market specialist Phil Cohn, RAMPCarbon; senior agricultural scientis Stephen Wiedemann, FSA and Climate change R&D manager Tom Davison,MLA, with host Greg Bath (FutureBeef).
