Livestock

Cattle, sheep and other agricultural stock need protection from bushfires.

Livestock by the water

Plan ahead:

  • Create a heavily grazed area where stock can be moved during a bushfire. This could be a grazed or green paddock or a laneway, with access to water.
  • Consider having a central laneway to assist moving stock before a fire threatens.
  • Identify a possible containment area where stock can be fed after a fire. In addition to containing stock, this also reduces the risk of weed spread across the property following a fire.
