BEEFCHEQUE Yr 1
Staring late April
· Helping you to develop a more productive, more profitable and more sustainable beef production system
· Helping you with cost effective drought recovery strategies
BeefCheque is about growing more grass, utilising more grass, growing more beef (or lamb, mutton, wool) and ultimately making more money.
The program is run on-farm over 8 sessions from April to November.
Beefcheque is very practical, run on-farm and responds to seasonal conditions.
In Year 1 – participants learn principles of pasture and livestock interaction, and these principles become the basis for improved pasture and livestock management in the future.
The Wangaratta group aims to have around 12 members and will be facilitated by
Cheryl Graham (Farminganswers, Milawa). The group will have access to Technical
Specialists who provide advice in areas such as fertiliser application, soil fertility, feed
budgeting, actions and strategies to optimize pasture growth and how to manage
your way through abnormal conditions.
The program demonstrates how to integrate management activities, make the most
of resources and increase sustainability of your farming system.
