Abstract

Dairy farmers may be able to increase farm profitability by obtaining pasture measurement data. Four Tasmanian dairy farmers participated in an eighteen-month study investigating the value of accessing regular pasture measurements. The farmers reported an increased confidence in their visual observations of pasture covers by having access to the provided data and for three of the four farmers this has led to an estimated improvement in profitability ranging from $90/ha to $550/ha.
