Finishing systems put to economic test

Finishing systems put to economic test | Leucaena | Scoop.it

A three-year trial underway in Queensland is examining the economics of four different finishing systems for cattle – improved pastures, leucaena, oats and grain feeding.

 

A group of similar steers with otherwise identical backgrounds was split in mid-November 2010, with 69 steers moved onto leucaena-grass pastures, and 18 moved onto improved pastures comprising mainly Bambatsi and green panic.


Seven months later, in June last year, the steers on leucaena were split three ways onto oats, into the feedlot and back onto the leucaena, with the aim of finishing them before the end of the year. The steers on the improved pastures were retained on the improved pasture throughout.
