Abstract

A drought and dry season management program needs to consider the effect on land, pasture, animal welfare, property finances and people. Cattle are an asset and must be sold or moved early to minimise the impact on land productivity and business viability, as well as the potential impacts on the health and well-being of beef producers. As a sustainable and profitable beef producer, drought feeding should be avoided. ‘No rain – no grass – no cattle’ is the rule-of-thumb for successful
beef producers.
