Pas­ture in­for­ma­tion avail­able

Mansfield Courier - - PROPERTY -

SHEEP and cat­tle pro­duc­ers through­out high rain­fall zones of Vic­to­ria – in­clud­ing the North East - now have ac­cess to new re­gion­ally rel­e­vant in­for­ma­tion to help man­age pas­ture and live­stock sys­tems.

The pas­ture in­for­ma­tion in­cor­po­rates 10 years of re­search and on-farm demon­stra­tions, and pro­vides fact sheets, tools and cal­cu­la­tors for pro­duc­ers to as­sess op­tions for im­proved pas­ture man­age­ment.

DEPI EverGraze na­tional project leader, Kate Sargeant, said these par­tic­u­lar re­gions show a high de­gree of vari­a­tion in cli­mate, soil, al­ti­tude and as­pect, plac­ing lim­i­ta­tions on what pas­ture species will grow and how they will per­form.
