Set annual targets for livestock classes and pasture

Georgia January 25, 2022

Plan how you want the pastures and stock to look throughout the year. An example is shown in figure 8.5 for a winter rainfall area but the principle is the same for all environments

Figure 8.5 Managing the risk of increasing pasture utilisation is all about planning ahead. Set targets, monitor and have trigger points for action when things deviate from your plan. Example for northern Victoria.

Managing higher pasture utilisation is all about planning ahead (see figure 8.5.) Set targets, monitor, and have trigger points for action when things deviate from your plan.

Setting targets for pasture supply and animal demand through the year gives you the decision framework for taking action if stock condition or pasture mass deviate significantly from the plan.
