Determining property-level rates of breeder cow mortality in northern Australia including literature review

The Determining property-level rates of breeder cow mortality in northern Australia including literature review project investigated breeder mortality in northern beef herds and highlighted the difficulties in sourcing accurate data, and then developed a mortality calculator tool to enable producers to use their own property records to determine levels of breeder mortality in their herds and the associated financial losses. To learn more, please read the final report summary (B.NBP.0664) and download the final report (PDF, 2.4 MB) and the literature review final report (PDF, 600.3 KB) from the Meat & Livestock Australia website.
