Grazing Cereals

Grazing cereals although widely practised for many generations has found new life courtesy of the Grain and Graze 1 program and funding support to promote the concept particularly in combination with electric fencing to manage grazing.

Trials have demonstrated that grain yield of winter-grazed cereals varies across species, varieties, regions and seasons and that electric fencing is not for everyone.

Although cereals provide a valuable source of winter feed production for livestock managing the balance of nutritional requirements for sheep and cattle is not without challenges. If you find that mineral supplements are not controlling animal health issues particularly with ewes in late pregnancy or during lambing please contact the specialist livestock nutritionists at Productive Nutrition for assistance.
