A GRAZIER could risk forgoing production costs of $127/hectare by overgrazing a paddock and take up to 33 months to recover just two thirds of its original carrying capacity.
Those were just some of the first hand experiences from a range of property owners whom collect and record data through MaiaGrazing technology.
The findings were shared to a crowd of more than 280 producers and consultants from across the country at a field day at Ebor recently where attendees gathered to hear the answer to one of the industry’s burning questions, how do you create a drought resilient business?
While the current conditions have placed increased strain on decision making, MaiaGrazing grazing analyst Bart Davidson said producers were in a perfect position to gather data from their current situations and better equip themselves.
