AN IMPORTANT NOTICE:
The reduction over the last few years was necessitated to arrest overgrazing on commons, reserves and unfenced lands
and to acknowledge that some of these areas will need to be fenced during the year to allow regeneration of pastures and
revegetation with native species.

Further areas have been fenced and although there are short periods of grazing allowed in the fenced areas it is not
possible to allow uncontrolled grazing for long periods.

Persons who currently apply and who do not use the full allocation are asked to notify the Programme Manager -
Community Services or Stock Inspector to allow a better utilisation of the rights that are available for granting.
                                                                                                                 I.F. BUFFETT
