Feed budget calculator

This simple Excel based calculator has been developed to assist in developing a grazing plan for winter cereals.  The calculator enables two different calculations to be made, either;

  • The number of stock to graze a paddock over a set period of time and/or

  • The number of grazing days for a paddock with a set number of animals.

Default figures are for the high rainfall region of South west Victoria only.  Users in other regions may need to adjust the assumption in the calculator.
