The authors of this paper note in the conclusion: “At current livestock prices, financial returns are possible based on the grazing value of the canola alone, and grain is the secondary commodity but still important”. Please access the full paper via the link below if this research interests you.

The take home messages from this GRDC funded research are below. Please access the full paper via the link below for methodology, references, acknowledgements and discussion.

Take home messages from the paper include:

  • At current livestock prices, gross margin returns in excess of $2000/ha have been achieved with irrigated grain and grazed canola.
  • A better understanding of the agronomy of winter canola and how it fits into the livestock program has been established and are critical to success.
  • Further work needs to be undertaken on the issues which are currently barriers to adoption.
