Techniques to increase beef production on pasture
Traditionally, Kangaroo Island farmers have carried out set stocking systems for both sheep and cattle enterprises. Research across Australia and the world has shown that a rotational or cell grazing system can increase plant production due to increased leaf area, as a result of resting pasture. On correctly run systems beef production is greatly increased. The aim of this trial was to test a simple and cheap system to increase pasture utilisation and increase levels of beef produced per hectare.
