Fodder Shrub Research
A four year joint research project with South Australian Research and Development Institute and the Cooperative Research Centre for Future Farming Industries supported by the Coorong Tatiara Local Action Plan recently concluded.
It explored research opportunities and pitfalls of introducing new perennial forage systems into grazing enterprises, particularly on mixed cropping farms. The research improved local understanding of how to best make use of fodder shrubs as part of a productive grazing system, particularly in regard to grazing shrubs in conjunction with other standing feed such as perennial pastures.
