Forage Fact Sheet: Fodder Conservation – Hay

Forage Fact Sheet: Fodder Conservation – Hay

October 26, 2021

Climate variability and drought are normal features of the Australian environment. This is a harsh yet true reality for most farming areas of Australia.

In Australia there are often times when available feed supply is severely reduced due to long periods of little or no rain. These drier periods may be either predicted seasonal patterns, or unpredicted (i.e. droughts). An example of a predicted dry period is the normal weather and rainfall pattern in Southern Australia, which experiences relatively dry summers and wet winters. In many parts of Australia there may be regular autumn feed shortfalls, particularly for feed of high quality.

Short-term fodder conservation can play an important role in helping to fill these regular feed gaps and boost livestock production.
