Grain and Graze 3 is the third phase of a mixed farming investment by the GRDC... Theme 1 - Enhanced grazing of cropped land Spring varieties of cereal and brassica crops offer a significant potential feed source for Western Australian mixed-farming businesses and can provide improved returns for mixed farmers when implemented across the whole farming system... Most farmers and advisors know that integrated complex mixed farming systems provide better returns than cropping and livestock enterprises individually, because together they help a farmer to better manage business and seasonal risk...

They selected, as case studies, clients successful at both stock and crops and they entered their production data onto a spreadsheet... At the break-to-the-season put the sheep into areas saved for them, eg permanent pasture areas, saltbush, perennial veldt grass, standing crop, or into a containment area... Once the pasture gets to 3cm high, release the sheep and hopefully they will have feed in front of them for the rest of the season...

It is important to understand gross margin budgets and their role in farm financial analysis... Having all positive enterprise gross margins in a farming business does not necessarily mean the total business is profitable, as other costs such as overhead costs and financing costs are not taken into account in gross margins... As gross margins only assess variable costs, they should not be the sole information used to calculate the cost of production...

The paper is based on the concept that Controlled Traffic Farming (CTF) systems are the future of the grains industry all cropping industries... The paper discusses some of the important production drivers in the grazing operations, being pasture improvement, crop: stock land mix and stocking rate... Using single variant analysis we can see that profit was largely influenced by yield the variation in yield was heavily influenced by how efficient the water was used rather than just the amount of rain received across all regions...

I strongly believe that with good management in the right environment, livestock can complement a cropping enterprise in a number of ways and vice versa... The Environment Conventional cropping systems in the Central USA have low levels of biological diversity and rely heavily on synthetic fertilisers and herbicides... An experiment run over 10 years by Texas Tech University USA, has shown that an integrated crop/forage/livestock system compared with a cotton monoculture has decreased nitrogen use by 40% and lowered irrigation water use by 25% whilst maintaining similar profitability between the two systems...

Compiled by Barry Mudge, for Rural Solutions SA, the guide has been mailed by GRDC to about 6700 producers and industry contacts across the State... Mr Mudge said the guide aimed to provide an indication of the relative profitability of various crops and livestock enterprises, as well as a template for producers to calculate their own numbers... "While there are many factors to consider when setting up a farm plan, the guide aims to assist producers in analysing the financial consequences of selecting various enterprises," Mr Mudge said...
