Broadacre Case Studies
Andrew and Linda Whiting run dairy cows on their 300-acre dryland farm at Simpson in the Western District of Victoria. Annual rainfall in the region is approximately 760mm and the pastures, on sandy loam soils, are predominantly ryegrass and white clover with some sub-clover.
Adrian and Sue Young own Glenmar Holsteins, a dairy and stud in Glencoe, near Mt Gambier in the south east of South Australia. They milk around 300 cows and their stud has produced multi-award winning dairy cattle.
