Are you looking for a way to keep track of the pasture you have on hand? Or a tool to help you estimate the amount pasture you will have to carry you through to the next growing season? Forage budgeting will help you match stocking rates (number of animals) to the quantity of useful feed you have available.


Forage Budgeting will help you maximise pasture utilisation, whilst leaving enough residual pasture to maintain and improve your land condition  ensuring the pasture is able to respond to rain and produce useful grass. Delivered by a one-on-one, grazier to grazier service from local graziers in the region, you will receive support from people who have found success in using this tool on their own property and the challenges involved. If this project sounds like something you, or someone you know, would be interested in, please contact Ed Wood at CHRRUP on  (07) 4982 2996 or

Producer groups are being formed in the Suttor, Belyando and Cape Campaspe sub-catchments now so get in touch now to register your interest.
