The profitability and resilience of Central Queensland (CQ) beef enterprises is affected by the management strategies that are used in response to property level production implications (Bowen and Chudleigh 2018). Therefore, when assessing the relative value of a current or potential new management strategy, it is critical to apply a sound economic framework at a property level basis. The aim of this study was to use an established farm-management economic framework to assess the benefits of implementing two alternative management strategies on a CQ case study herd: (1) correcting a phosphorus (P) deficiency through wet season supplementation; and (2) modifying the turn-off age of male cattle from bullocks to feedlot entry weight (Bowen and Chudleigh 2018).
