AWI unveils new innovations in wool farming
03
Feb '14
Australian producers are sharing innovations to reduce time, save on costs and generally make life easier.
 
Bestprac, Australian Wool Innovation's extension network for pastoral wool producers, has profiled ideas such as goat traps, grid gates and the use of electronic sheep technology through the Innovation Manual but has now launched the first outputs of the Accelerating Rangeland Innovation project.
 
Wool producers who are seeking new ideas to implement in their business can now access a series of innovations from other pastoral properties. These have been published as profiles, business cases and videos available on the Bestprac website.
 
"AWI is accelerating the uptake of innovation in the pastoral zone by sharing advancements within the industry. The innovation profiles, videos and business cases will show you how you can implement these innovations on your own property, while up-skilling the whole industry," said Pene Keynes, Bestprac National Coordinator.
 
Angus Whyte is a NSW pastoral wool producer who has implemented rotational grazing on his property. He says, since making the change "rotational grazing has been a major time saver, and has made us more money in our business."
 
Business cases have been developed to help producers identify the benefits, costs and risks associated with a sample of innovations, including 'Shearing Every Eight Months'. "These business cases provide pastoralists with a useful planning process to help them make a decision. A bit like formalising those 'back of the envelope' calculations," said Pene Keynes, Bestprac National Coordinator.
 
Bestprac is running an online webinar on the 12th of February at 6pm SA time, on 'How to Implement Rotational Grazing in the Pastoral Zone'. The webinar will give pastoralists the opportunity to hear from livestock consultant, Nic Kentish, and Angus Whyte.
