Projected green herbage available relative to historic variation

Current Growth
(modelled)
44kg/ha/day
Summary
  • Currently tracking in top 50% of years on record
  • Poor conditions until January 29 will result in pasture availability in the top 50% of years on record
  • Average conditions will see pasture availability in the top 50% of years on record
  • Really good conditions will see pasture availability in the top 25% of years on record

Plant available soil water (modelled)

Current PAW
(3 day average)
37mm
Summary
  • Plant available water (calculated as an average over the last 3 days) represents water held across the entire pasture root zone
  • At this time of year, for the wettest 10% of cases the soil has held 18mm or more and is currently holding 37mm
  • Currently the PAW is wet relative to historic variation

Ground Cover

Current Ground Cover
99%
Chance of falling below the minimum ground cover target
(if no changes are made)
0%
Summary
  • Ground cover should be managed carefully and maintained at over critical level of 70% to prevent erosion
  • Current ground cover of 99% is greater than the minimum ground cover target
  • There is a low risk (0% chance) of dropping below this level

Female Condition Score

Current condition score
2.9
Summary
  • Condition scores are currently below average for this time of year
  • Poor conditions until January 29 will result in a below average condition score, supplementary feeding may be required
  • Average conditions will see a below average condition score, supplementary feeding may be required
  • Really good conditions will see a below average condition score, supplementary feeding may be required

Stock Weight

Summary
  • Potential liveweight of weaned male progeny from the forecast pasture levels
  • There is a 50% chance of animals reaching 33.3kg by the end of the Forecast Period
Male weaners average weight
33.4kg
Female weaners average weight
30.3kg

Feeding Projections for Weaners

Summary
  • The amount of supplementary feed per head per day and the time when feeding will start at 3 percentile levels

Total Supplement Fed

Summary
  • The probability of the total supplement fed in the three month forecast period exceeding the value shown on the horizontal axis (kg/head) for the 3 age groups of females
  • There is a 3% chance of needing to supply feed to maidens, mature females and weaners
  • There is a 50% chance of needing to feed 0kg/hd to maidens, mature females and weaner females
