Updated yesterday

Mobile App

Please follow these steps to record the Feed on Offer in a paddock.

Select the Paddocks tab and tap a paddock to record feed on offer

Press the Paddock Record button at the bottom of the page and then select Feed on Offer from the More Options pop-up.

Enter the Date that the FOO was recorded as well as the Current Feed on Offer. You can do this manually or use the Estimate by Height button. This allows you to estimate dry matter by vegetation height. Simply choose the pasture height and corresponding kg DM/ha then select Ok.

Note: The estimation ruler is dependent on your farm region and assumes an average vegetation quality. By default, the ruler is based on the MLA Pasture Ruler. For farms in the US, it is sourced from West Virginia University.

Note: To create a comprehensive Feed Budget, you may also wish to input Target Residual and Pasture Growth to determine your Grazing Days remaining

Add Target Residual

  1. Target Residual will automatically be set to 0kg DM/ha. To edit Target Residual, select a paddock and press More

  2. Press Target Residual and enter your desired Target Residual. Press Save to finalise your entry.

Add Pasture Growth

  1. Select a paddock and press More

  2. Press Pasture Growth and enter your Current Pasture Growth Rate and the date it was recorded. Press Save to finalise your entry

You can also update your Feed on Offer, Pasture Growth Rate and Target Residual when performing a Mob Movement Record. Each time livestock are moved from paddock to paddock, use the Grazing Planner and update your pasture records. Note this is only available for mob management subscriptions and not individual management.
