Plan ahead for pasture management
A dry spring across southern Australia means tough decisions need to be made about livestock and pasture management. Assistance is available with the decision making process. Tools in the “Making More from Sheep – Turn Pasture into Product” module will assist producers to maximise the available pasture. If you are considering placing your sheep in containment paddocks or lot feeding “Drought feeding and Management of Sheep” or “AWI Drought resources” contains useful information.
