Whole farm economic analyses have shown that perennial legumes are a profitable intervention for many areas of northern Australia. In particular, analyses for central Queensland have shown that perennial legumes (and especially leucaena) are the most profitable of all available beef production strategies as well as being the most profitable of all forage options.

However, most producers only have a limited area of arable soil suited to planting to high quality forages such as perennial legume-grass pastures or annual forage crops. Therefore, they have to make decisions regarding:

  • Which high quality forage to plant, and
  • How to allocate the high quality forage between different age groups of steers in the herd (i.e. when should steers start grazing high quality forage, for how long, and for which target market?).

This presentation by Dr Maree Bowen will address these two research questions using forage oats and leucaena-grass pastures grown in central Queensland, as an example.
