DEPARTMENT OF PRIMARY INDUSTRY AND FISHERIES BARKLY BEEF | page 3 www.dpif.nt.gov.au performance outcomes of the system compare to traditional grazing practices. Stay tuned for future results! Participants at the Beetaloo Field Day Tennant Creek Office Wins Equal Runners-Up in Chief Ministers Awards The Tennant Creek Livestock Industry Development team, formerly known as the Pastoral Production Team, was recently nominated for the Chief Minister's Award for Building Regional and/or Remote Economies for their program of training the staff on cattle stations across the Barkly. The nomination recognised the two major courses run on Barkly including the biennial run Barkly Herd Management Forum aimed at middle management staff such as assistant managers, overseers, leading hands and head stockmen, and the Rangeland Management Courses that are aimed primarily for staff in the stockcamp and provide a good introduction to general pasture and cattle management practices for those new to the Barkly. Casey Collier and Helen McMillan (Tennant Creek DPIF office) and Jodie Ward (Katherine DPIF who also co-presented the Rangeland Management Courses earlier in 2014) travelled to Darwin in midNovember for the awards ceremony. Unfortunately Jane Douglas (Tennant Creek DPIF office) was unable to attend. The Tennant Creek Team did extremely well to be equal runner up along with Remote Housing Property and Tenancy Management Contracts with the Department of Housing. The winner in this category was a large team from several agencies working on economic development on the Tiwi Islands.
