    The use of irrigated pasture is a potential option for many livestock producers. Irrigated cool-season species, for example, can be used as complementary forage to warm-season rangeland (Nichols et al. ) or mitigate some of the effects of drought.

Pasture, without any input other than basic fertiliser, drives more than 85 percent profit for most farms at a $ per kg MS milk price, and 98 percent at a $ milk price. By putting pasture first farmers can reap the rewards. For 5 grazing seasons of days 40 Hereford steers grazed a pasture of acres. Unsupplemented animals made unsatisfactory daily gains of to lb., but those given a self-fed supplement of barley 2 parts and molassed sugar beet pulp 1 part ate to lb. of this mixture daily and gained to lb.

irrigated pasture production; suggests management practices that allow irrigated pastures to express their production potential; and suggests stocking rates for various levels of production and classes of cattle. irrigated pastures are a high investment enterprise which requires grazing management designed to maximize returns.
