We enjoy developing and implementing pasture development projects. We are today continuing our long association with Willow Park Stud a leading thoroughbred stud, who is totally committed to their pasture programs and the important role they play in their operation.
This paddock has recently commenced redevelopment - clearing of woody weeds and regrowth, fallow spray programs, cultivation, our rock picking program and now sowing of a grazing oats crop for winter/spring grazing, before going to summer perennial pasture later in the year. The makeover continues!

When we go to horse farms to do rock picking work, the farm and horse stud staff line the farm roads and cheer! We clear the paddock of stones and rocks with our gear, in a few days, that these staff and backpackers would spend weeks on end in a chain gang with feed buckets and quad bikes with small trailers, hand picking thousands of stones and rocks and then not get them all. Everyone is happy when we do the job! ... See MoreSee Less

If you want productive pastures, that will be there through and after the droughts then start planning to establish subtropical grasses! Archie Bell who works on his family property Belford Park, east of Scone is showing you a resilient stand of Digit Grass, established 10 years ago, responding to rain in February 2020 after very severe drought conditions in this area over the last 3 years. This pasture has endured many tough seasons over this time and continues to keep giving! ... See MoreSee Less

You have to love subtropical pastures; we certainly do! Look at the volume of quality feed on offer here the first week of May 2020. Pictured is a mob of our 50 Angus weaner heifers, around 280 to 320 kg being grown out for joining in early spring entering their next paddock of subtropical pasture today after weighing. We do this to provide us and readers with actual pasture x livestock production data.
These heifers have been grazing well managed subtropical pasture at an average stocking rate of just under 5 heifers/ ha for the last 8 weeks. They have been gaining an average of 0.9 kg/head/day over this period. Weight gains varied from 0.75 to 1.1 kgDM/head/day, which is very pleasing and where we want to be.
So over the last 8 weeks these heifers have put on a total of just under 2500 kg of liveweight gain. At a current prices, of say $4.70/kg liveweight, it is just under $12,000 of value . However, we are looking at their value as future breeders, or sale as joined females. Who knows where that will be when the time comes. There is a general lack of real subtropical pasture x livestock production data available to make informed decisions. We hope our program can encourage you to seek our advice on establishing and managing your own subtropical pasture program!

We had direct drilled our winter forage grass blend at Segenhoe (Stud) Group near Scone, exactly 4 weeks ago today. This shows what can be achieved by following our comprehensive program.
