Enrich was a 9-year, national, multidisciplinary project with research organisations and producer groups in Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria and NSW. The research considered the nutritive value of the forage, the timing of its availability, livestock grazing behaviour and diet selection, and NRM benefits associated with the inclusion of perennial shrub species
It explored the potential of perennial plants native to Australia to contribute to grazing systems in southern Australia for multiple benefits, including:
Presentations to farmer groups on supplementary feeding practices, and assessing feed on offer to grazing livestock, especially during periods of less-than-ideal feed supply.
You can download PDF versions of two booklets that the research team produced. We’re quite proud of those little booklets!
