This project will fast-track direct support to cropping and livestock farmers across three states (Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania) in the management of pastures and use of livestock containment and feeding systems for drought resilience. The project demonstrations, activities and outputs will lead to improved farm decision-making and improved environmental conditions in preserving soil cover and livestock welfare and nutrition in periods leading into, during and following drought.
