Western Local Land Services works with land managers and the community to improve primary production within healthy landscapes. Western LLS help people make better decisions about the land they manage and assist rural and regional communities to be profitable and sustainable into the future. They connect people with groups, information, support and funding to improve agricultural productivity and better manage natural resources.
The Western LLS region is the largest in NSW, covering about 40 per cent of the state. Despite its size, it is the least densely populated region with approximately 42,873 people. It encompasses one of the most diverse rangeland areas in Australia, comprised of arid and semi-arid land. The southern and eastern parts of the region are used for intensive agricultural practices.
Grazing (sheep, cattle, goats), dryland and irrigated cropping, horticulture and viticulture, mining and nature conservation are key activities within the Western LLS region.
Co-ordinated biosecurity programs are undertaken to control pests such as goats, rabbits, pigs and foxes and monitor for animal diseases that affect herd and flock productivity.
If you are a landholder in Balranald, upper Bogan, Bourke, Brewarrina, Broken Hill, upper Carathool, Central Darling, Cobar, upper Hay or Wentworth local government areas, Western LLS is the place to go for all your local land service needs.
