Abstract

Total grazing management (TGM) systems were designed to assist producers in the Western Australian rangelands to improve station productivity.TGM systems can increase the profits of pastoral properties by improving management control over grazing animals and by decreasing operating costs.

Over 1000 TGM yards have been put on the ground in the southern rangelands.The majority of these are sheep and goat systems, though an increasing number of cattle systems, and cattle, sheep and goat systems are being built.

This booklet is a practical guide to the types of TGM selfmustering systems available. It is designed to be used as a planning tool and as reference guide out in the paddock.
