About Us

Agriculture Victoria

The Victorian Government helps Victorian industries grow by delivering services that seek to attract investment, increase exports and create jobs.

Agriculture Victoria supports this agenda by delivering policy, research, development, extension, regulation and market access/facilitation services to long established and mature agricultural industries such as beef and sheep, as well as new and emerging industries.

The Feeding Livestock web site

Improving livestock feeding practices provides an important means of managing challenging seasonal conditions and recovering more quickly from drought.

This Agriculture Victoria website brings you reliable, science-based information and specialist tools to help you manage in tough times. We’ve put all the key resources here in one place to make access straightforward, including our popular Drought Books. These essential guides to feeding livestock can be accessed in full or by chapter and are still available in print form too (call 136 186 to get a copy).

We add new material to this site regularly so check back now and then – not just when it’s dry. New features and news items will keep you up-to-date. If you have any ideas for useful content or suggestions about improvements, fill out the feedback form or contact our Customer Call Centre on 136 186.

All the best feeding your livestock!
