PDS: Feeding Grain on Grass

This project will fund a demonstration site for producers in central west and northern New South Wales, to demonstrate the benefits of using forage and grain feed tests to develop a grain ration to supplement livestock that are grazing forage crops. Supplementary feeding increases liveweight gain and enables improved production efficiency and increased profitability.

Testing Tropicals - NSW Southern Slopes

This project will fund a Producer Demonstration Site (PDS) featuring tropical and sub-tropical pasture species in production systems on the southern slopes of New South Wales. Producers will be able to compare these species to current summer feed options (e.g. lucerne and summer-active perennials), and work out what management adaptations would be necessary to successfully incorporate these species.

Management options and species evaluation to increase productivity in dieback affected pastures - PHASE II

Pasture dieback is a condition that causes the death of sown and native pastures by affecting plant health and function, reducing productivity. By continuing work to evaluate new practices for the control of pasture dieback, and feed options for livestock, this project will help ensure the productivity and profitability of red meat enterprises in affected regions of Queensland.
