Improving the performance of beef production systems in northern Australia – Part 2
Low cost strategies to build the resilience of beef production systems in northern Australia
This is the second of two webinars developed from analyses undertaken in the Fitzroy and northern Gulf catchments of Queensland and the Katherine region of the Northern Territory.
In this webinar Fred Chudleigh (Department of Agriculture and Fisheries Agricultural Economist, Toowoomba) identifies the value of low cost strategies aimed at improving the resilience of the beef herd. Topics covered include the value of managing breeder body condition, optimising your female culling strategy and identifying the best age to sell steers. Assessing the breakeven value of producing weaner steers in the northern Gulf is also discussed. 38:59 published 8 July 2018 by FutureBeefAu.
