Location: Barossa, Lower North and Northern Hills properties

Cost: $2,200 per business (ex GST) if there are 8 businesses participating.

Program overview:

Applicable to permanent pastures in the western/southern Australia temperate rainfall zone, the program takes 11-12 months. During this time each participant will be encouraged to take messages from the program and apply to their own farm, review the success (and failures), observe what has worked/not worked and discuss this with other participants and to work through possible solutions.

What you will learn:

  • How much can an animal eat, how to measure this and how to determine if this is adequate.
  • How much pasture can you grow and how to improve this.
  • How to turn the maximum amount of pasture profitability into meat and/or wool.

There are 8 x ½ day on farm sessions plus 1 x ½ day individual coaching session. Each of the 8 x ½ day sessions will include a theory session and a paddock inspection to assess pasture feed on offer and quality, animal performance from the pasture, grazing management and feed budgeting looking ahead.

For more detailed information download the flyer.

Deliverers:

Tim Prance, T Prance Rural Consulting and Daniel Schuppan, Landmark Animal Production Specialist.
