1. Is your property greater than 10 ha?
2. At any time, do you carry more than 8 stock units per hectare?
Stock units provide a consistent means of measuring the amount of feed (or energy) consumed by an animal. The stock units listed in the table below are the same as those used in the Beef & Lamb Benchmarking surveys. For those stock classes not listed/used in the B&L survey the default values from Overseer® are listed. To calculate the stocking rate divide the total stock units by the grazing area of your property.
3. Do you ever grow rotational vegetable crops on your farm?
4. Is your property a dairy farm?
5. Do you ever grow and then graze forage crops on your property?
