Stocking Rate

View your total stocking rate and paddock stocking rate

Updated over a week ago

Within AgriWebb, your stocking rate will be calculated based upon your chosen animal units per hectare/acre of arable area. 

This means inputting animal unit values will be required before you can start accurately reporting your stocking rate. In AgriWebb you are able to choose between Dry Sheep Equivalent, Livestock Units and Adult Equivalent as your preferred standard measurement unit. Check out our full guide to Animal Units to learn how to select the default unit for your operation. 

Stocking Rate Calculation 

There are two important factors in our stocking rate calculation: 

  1. Arable Area of paddocks is used for calculation (not Total Area)

  2. Paddock Grazing state is considered (Cropping paddocks will not be included in the calculation)

Review your paddocks from the Web App to ensure accuracy of your stocking rate. Make sure you check out our full guide to Editing a Paddock, to learn how to update your paddock details.
