Containment Feeding Innovation: Enhancing stock containment practices before, during and post drought

Vic Drought Hub - Farmland 1
  • Riverine Plains
  • Containment Feeding

To improve pasture and livestock management prior to, during and post drought in NE Victoria.

The NE node examined farmers’ use of containment areas and the interaction with feed and livestock management before, during and after drought (addressing the gaps). Results of this project will be used by farmers in containment design and livestock management strategies in non-drought periods as well as leading into and during drought and forage use in containment feeding.
