MLA – B FDP 0030: Moora Miling – Whole farm profit of grazing crops
An evaluation of the benefits to sheep production systems of using crops as a feed source will take place in the Moora region of Western Australia. This will occur through examining the value of time taken in sowing the crop, the benefits to pasture growth of deferring grazing and the yield penalties incurred as a result of grazing the crops.
This project forms part of MLAs Producer Research Site program that is part of the southern Feedbase Investment Plan. In particular, this project supports the MLA-funded project B.GSM.0008 – Step changes in meat production systems from dual-purpose crops in the feedbase.
