Meet Australian cattle & sheep farmers, discover 100 research projects and learn more about what is important to the sustainability of the industry

Reef and Beef Q&A

Bondi Rescue’s ‘Reidy’ travelled hundreds of kilometres from Sydney to the Great Barrier Reef to talk to experts and farmers in Queensland’s Fitzroy Basin on his #GoodMeat journey to discover how Aussie cattle farmers are working to protect our precious waterways. Today he answers some of the best #GoodMeat questions that you asked on Target 100’s Facebook and Twitter pages about his journey. We've popped the questions you asked below, and you can hear the answers in Reidy's video!

QUESTION 1: Are most people in the catchment actively using these grazing practices to help the water systems?

QUESTION 2: Has there been a noticeable improvement to river/ reef as a result of these changes? Also wondering how the farmers benefit by implementing these systems?

QUESTION 3: Do you think these practices are something we should use Australia wide to protect all waterways? What was the most interesting part of the trip? Why no goggles?
