Murray Dairy is currently hosting a series of bi-monthly lunchtime research sessions.May 22, 2014 3:55am
The first in the series was held in Tatura on Tuesday, and delivered the latest information and results on ‘Flexible Forages’ from the Department of Environment and Primary Industry’s senior research scientist, agronomy, Kevin Kelly and research scientist, agronomy, Alister Lawson, around lucerne irrigation strategies and tall fescue grazing management trials.
They also spoke about pasture research going into the future.
Highlights of the information includes:
● Using limited and variable water supplies on lucerne;
● Direction of new pasture research.
Mr Lawson said the project objectives were to determine the performance of lucerne under a range of irrigation strategies and develop grazing management criteria for tall fescue pastures.
‘‘The variable irrigation of lucerne’s objectives included determining the value of lucerne in the dairy feedbase under variable annual water allocations, and compare production, persistence and water use under a range of irrigation scenarios,’’ he said.
Mr Lawson said grazing management of tall fescue, an alternative to perennial ryegrass, looked to determine the effect of a range of grazing management treatments on DM accumulation/forage removal, composition, nutritive value and persistence, and develop physiological-based, grazing management guidelines for tall fescue.
