To build farmer skills to create trigger points for containment feeding.

This project involves 12 farmer groups (approx. 10 in each group) and satellite monitoring of groundcover and dry feed to inform these decision points (10 sites across Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia).  It uses the satellite monitoring platform from the soon to be completed NLP2 project (led by SFS, with Fed Uni and CiboLabs) that has calibrated pasture cover estimations in the high rainfall zone (Vic, SA, Tas). 2 year-project, led by Riverine Plains, assisted by Southern Farming Systems.
