Australian Rangeland Society

Range Management Newsletter 17/3

FROM THE PRESIDENT

David outlines what the Society has been up to in 2017 and what it has planned for 2018. Of special note is the Society’s interest in bidding to host the 2024 International Rangelands Congress – David is keen to hear from anybody who may be willing to join a committee to help lodge the bid by mid-2018.

FROM THE EDITOR

We would like some feedback on ways of making the newsletter more relevant and interesting to our readership.
