Information Sheets

Want to learn more?

Four information sheets have been compiled that cover important situations where pasture can be complemented to maximise production:

  • Utilising more dry pasture with an efficient rumen
  • Managing excess protein in pastures
  • Increasing utilisation of high moisture pastures
  • Converting more pasture with rapid rumen development

The following pages provide a brief overview of each of these complementary feeding applications.  Each information sheet explains:

  • How pasture is limiting production
  • The latest science about how to rectify pasture issues
  • Quantifying potential gains from complementary feeding

All the practical things to know:

  • Feed ingredients to overcome pasture issues
  • The quantity to feed per head per day
  • How to limit the quantity of feed delivered to the desired ration
  • Evaluating the most cost-effective feed
  • When to start and finish supplementation
  • How many livestock per feeder
  • The priorities of stock groups to supplement
  • Training livestock to use feeders
