Pasture growth predictions are available for south west and central Victoria
Pasture growth predictions for this spring are modelled and produced by Brendan Cullen, Senior Researcher grazing systems at Melbourne University, using soil moisture probe information at the specified sites. This is part of an Enhanced Producer Demonstration Site (funded by Agriculture Victoria and Meat and Livestock Australia) at sites with soil moisture probes. These are in central Victoria (Baynton) and in south west Victoria (Pigeon Ponds; Coojar and Dartmoor). Pasture cuts to validate the data are being collected where possible.
