Grassland Society of Southern Australia
The Grassland Society of Southern Australia (GSSA) was established in 1959 and has since grown from a membership of 250 to a membership of almost 600. The Society has a network of branches across southern Australia, and a Board that oversees the operation of the Society. The GSSA aims to be the industry leader in information exchange, and to facilitate on-farm research and adoption to increase the profitability and sustainability of pasture systems in southern temperate Australia.
The objectives of the Socity as detailed in the 2020 - 2025 Strategic Plan are:
- Deliver information in a format that improves on-farm adoption of research outcomes, to ensure profitability and sustainability of pasture systems;
- Identify research priorities and assist with the facilitation of research related to pasture systems in temperate Australia; and
- Operate as a professional organisation and continually evolve and prosper under changing external factors.
