Farm300 was developed by MLA to help cattle and sheep producers increase on-farm productivity and profitability while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The extension program ran from June 2013 to May 2015 and was funded by the Australian Government. It was managed by MLA in partnership with the Australian Farm Institute, Australian Wool Innovation and Dairy Australia. While the program is no longer actively running, the tools and resources developed for the program are still relevant and useful.
A number of resources were developed to support Farm300 participants, these include:
- Three steps to managing the impact of climate
- Feed Demand Calculator video tutorials
- Why sustainability matters
In this video, Rabobank's Head of Sustainable Business Development Marc Oostdijk and Phil Cohn from RAMP Carbon explain the push-pull factors driving the need to act on climate variability and shifts in livestock production globally.
