Higher Pasture Production and Utilisation
To increase carrying capacity and meat production per hectare, through increased pasture production and the use of improved legume pastures and new technologies. Three of the driest seasons on record in this area were recorded over the three years of the trial and due to the run of dry seasons, the project aims changed in Year 2 with more focus on managing feed supply in the summer months and increasing pasture production of legumes for the cropping rotation. While maintaining a focus on utilising tools such as pasture measurement, rotational grazing and simple feed budgeting. The trial focus was directed at establishing sub clover with treatments of inoculants to improve first and second year pasture production and nitrogen fixation (for cropping phase).
