Landholder Dung Beetle Survey
Riverina Highlands Landcare Network has embarked on a 2 year project to look at opportunities for maximising the use of dung beetles to improve pasture condition.

With funding secured from Meat and Livestock Australia, Riverina Highlands Landcare Network will be conducting a series of field trials to measure changes in cattle dung pads as a result of dung beetle activity.

As an initial stage of the project, the Landcare Network wishes to learn more about landholders current perceptions of dung beetles.
