Finally to the numerous farmers, business people and researchers I met around the world that were also very generous with their time and knowledge, thank you... It is widely regarded that cactus is high yielding, highly palatable and a readily available source of carbohydrates but lacks crude protein and crude fibre to get the best performance out of cactus it needs to be supplemented with a cheap source of fibre and protein (Nefzaoui, Salem, Salem, 2000, p512 - 516)... Develop a farming operation where a normal budget would rely on less than 50% of traditional farming system to generate the income reducing exposure to financial risk in droughts...

The aim of the project is to develop and promote the adoption of production practices in mixed farming systems on Eyre Peninsula that will improve whole farm profitability and sustainability and increase the efficient use of water and nutrients... The work will focus specifically on the management of groundcover and biomass by integrating cropping and livestock within conservation farming systems... With the support of the Eyre Peninsula Grain & Graze 2 project, the Future Farm Industries CRC (FFI CRC) research project Enrich@" has been established to investigate the potential of incorporating a mixture of perennial species into farming systems in low-rainfall areas across southern Australia...
