EverGraze Green Feed Allocation Tool
Research at Wagga Wagga showed that flushing ewes by grazing them on green feed (such as lucerne) for one week prior and one weeks during joining could result in higher twinning rates and around 10% extra lambs marked. However, the opportunity to graze ewes on lucerne needs to be compared to other option such as finishing lambs or growing weaners during the summer/autumn months. Green feed in summer is usually very scare and so needs to be grazed by the most responsive stock.
The EverGraze Green Feed Allocation Tool allows producers to compare different ways to use green feed in summer and so decide the most profitable way to use this valuable material.
