It is becoming more commonplace for graziers to adopt an investment/return strategy when the seasons and markets are right.
One of the lesser understood benefits of turning cattle off quicker is the saving of grass. The following example shows the use of the Weaner 17% pellet to take a 200kg weaner to 400kg:
200kg Weaner + 2kg/day pellets + 200 days + 1300kgs grass = 400kgs
200kg Weaner + 0kg/day pellets + 400 days + 2600kgs grass = 400kgs
At a cost of a little over $1/day a 1kg gain per day at good market prices will show an obvious profit with the additional benefit of having grass remaining.
