The Grassland Society of Southern Australia Inc. provides a forum for the transfer of information, ideas and experiences in relation to all aspects of grassland establishment, maintenance, utilisation, persistence and research.

The Society was formed in 1959 with a membership of 250 by the close of the year. Since those early days, the membership has grown to around 500 with eight branches. Central administrative functions are provided to the central committee and branches by a paid Secretary.

The objectives of the Society are;

  • to provide an opportunity to meet and exchange information, ideas and experiences relating to all aspects of grassland farming,
  • to encourage the investigation of problems related to grassland farming and foster the adoption of advances resulting from research, experimental work and practical experience, and
  • to provide an annual travel grant, available to members to further the development of grassland farming through travel and study programs.
