Herbage accumulation, botanical composition, and nutritive value of five pasture types for dairy production in southern Australia
Four pasture treatments were compared with a perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) and white clover (Trifolium repens) mixture, the commonly sown pasture type, at 3 sites in south-western Victoria, toExpand

Milk‐production potential of different sward types in a temperate southern Australian environment
Summary The milk-production potential of different sward types was measured in each of the four seasons of the year in a replicated experiment in south-west Victoria, Australia. Dairy cows wereExpand

Increasing home-grown forage consumption and profit in non-irrigated dairy systems. 2. Forage harvested
A dairy farmlet experiment was conducted at Terang in south-west Victoria, Australia, over 4 years to test the hypothesis that a 30% increase in forage harvested per ha could be achieved in aExpand

Increasing home-grown forage consumption and profit in non-irrigated dairy systems. 1. Rationale, systems design and management
The profitability of dairy businesses in southern Australia is closely related to the amount of feed consumed from perennial ryegrass-dominant pasture. Historically, the dairy industry has relied onExpand

Defoliation pattern, foraging behaviour and diet selection by lactating dairy cows in response to sward height and herbage allowance of a ryegrass-dominated pasture
The effects of sward surface height (SSH) and daily herbage allowance (HA) on the defoliation pattern and grazing mechanics of early lactation dairy cows grazing on irrigated perennial ryegrass–whiteExpand

Effects of pasture species mixture, management, and environment on the productivity and persistence of dairy pastures in south-west Victoria. 2. Plant population density and persistence
Poor persistence of perennial pastures, particularly perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne)-based pasture, is a major problem for the dairy industry in southern Australia. The effects of pasture speciesExpand

Effects of pasture species mixture, management, and environment on the productivity and persistence of dairy pastures in south-west Victoria. 1. Herbage accumulation and seasonal growth pattern
An experiment was conducted on 2 contrasting soil types for 4 years (1998–2001) to determine the effects of plant species mixture, management inputs, and environment on sown species herbageExpand

Regrowth dynamics and grazing decision rules: further analysis for dairy production systems based on perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) pastures
To support the further development of grazing practices for dairy production systems based on perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.), allometric relationships among leaf-stage categories andExpand

Increasing home-grown forage consumption and profit in non-irrigated dairy systems. 4. Economic performance
The profitability of dairy farm systems in southern Australia is closely related to the amount of pasture grown and consumed on-farm by dairy cows. However, there are doubts regarding the extent toExpand
