It’s never too early to plan for the next dry season…so why not start planning now?

In this presentation, Kiri Broad (DAF, Longreach) discusses getting organised now and not leaving the job of calculating your forage budget and adjusting paddock stocking rates too late.

Adjusting stocking rates to meet current feed supply, animal requirements, pasture utilisation and ground cover targets is best management practice.

A forage budget will help you decide if it is safe to carry more stock, to carry the same number for longer, or if there is not enough pasture to safely carry the number you have for the length of time you want.

Best management practice in the grazing industry is about implementing grazing fundamentals that are most effective at achieving a productive, profitable and sustainable grazing business.
