In south-western Australia all grazing stock face a period of 'inadequate' nutrition each autumn.
The Department of Agriculture's beef production research programme has for some years sought solutions to this problem, and the results from the programme have been used to develop strategies for achieving satisfactory production levels at least cost during autumn.
This article discusses the resulting techniques, and the research on which they are based.
