The economic value of grazing dual-purpose cereal crops

Published: 1 Sep 2019

Farmers’ attitudes to the role of grazing crops has changed over time from an opportunistic ‘feed grab’ approach to a planned and strategic approach aimed at improving whole-farm profitability.

Research has shown that grazing crops in Western Australia can deliver improvements to whole-farm profitability of up to 18.9 per cent (Esperance), 19.2 per cent (Moora) and 62 per cent (Katanning) compared with not grazing crops at all.
