Adaptation Actions

58 - Plant less susceptible grasses like Glycine, Signal, Guinea and Koronea grasses which may be affected by salt for 2-3 weeks after the storm, but then will recover.
59 - Plant wind breaks near pastures that are coastal, already salt tolerant species
160 - Plant shade trees around and within bullock and pig pastures/enclosures
161 - Keep forested/shade/reserve areas within the farm, so that during drought times, animals can be moved into these cooler naturally moist areas
162 - Bullock may be grazed in the open, but for resting should be brought into forests
163 - Utilize appropriate building materials for livestock enclosres that can withstand climtic extremes
163 - Build special enclosures for pigs to have an appropriate balance of exposure and shelter
164 - Select shady sites for pig enclosures
165 - Provide shade over the chicken fence, either with normal housing roof material or trees.
166 - Provide bullock with bore hole wells within pastures
167 - Provide dishes of water, cement pools inside pig fence
168 - Provide bullock with water dumps within pastures (Dig trenches to hold water)
169 - Proactively move animals (bullock, pigs, goats etc) close to rivers, streams and water sources during drought times.
170 - Build cement water catchment pools within the bullock enclosure
171 - Provide water to chickens in dishes inside of the fence
172 - Practice compositing inside the chicken fence, to keep soil moisture and also attract food insects
173 - Design bullock pastures so that streams and other water courses pass through them
174 - Design bullock pastures with appropriate mix of grasses: 70% grass, 30% legume
175 - Utilize gravity feed water systems to bring water into the pasture
176 - Use Bamboo ‘pipes’ to get water running into farms
