Alternative Winter Forages for a variable climate guide

A selection guide for Victorian dairy farmers

On dairy farms, forages are thought about in a very different way today than they might have been in the past.

Forages (pastures and crops) can play a key role in helping to manage seasonal variability and fill gaps in the feed budget. The aim of this guide is to discuss the role that forages can play on dairy farms to help manage climate variability and risk, as well as help the reader to select the right forages for their unique situation.
