Increasing Pasture Productivity and Utilisation
The project The Lower Murchison Pastoral Bestprac Group aimed to improve both lambing and weaning rates of the partnering station flocks in the Lower Murchison by effectively aligning stocking rate with seasonal carrying capacity. An increase in the average lambing rate from 49% to 80% was estimated to generate an additional $17.7M revenue for the region, while a reduction in average mortality rates of weaners from 22% to 10% would translate to direct savings of $35,000 per annum for each sheep station in the region.
