Feeding Livestock website

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.

We hope you enjoy this website.
