Recent widespread rains across south eastern Australia, coupled with high livestock prices for both sheep and cattle have turned seasonal conditions around. This provides an opportunity for autumn plantings of both pastures and grazing cereals. To obtain maximum benefits from these plantings, prior planning to fill the autumn/winter feed gap is required. Being on top of weed management, pest management, grazing management and animal health issues will be the key to success. Seed treatments can offer big advantages in disease and pest management, especially with early sowings.
Grazing cereals, early sown annual and Italian ryegrasses and forages such as brassicas will all have a role to play to take advantage of early sowing opportunities.
Forage oats, dual-purpose grazing oats, winter wheats, long season triticale, grazing barley and cereal rye are the main cereal options.
