Abstract

Cereal and cereal/vetch forage crops were grown at Culcairn, NSW in 2009 and Temora, NSW in 2010 to evaluate yield and quality when harvested at the boot, anthesis (flowering), milk and soft/mid dough stage of cereal development. Annual rainfall at the sites was 377mm in 2009 and 736mm in 2010. Average yield (t DM/ha), metabolisable energy (ME) (MJ/kg DM) and crude protein (CP) (%) content were 6.6, 10.5, 12.0 and 21.1, 9.4, 14.8 in 2009 and 2010 respectively. ME content of crops was higher in 2009 compared to 2010 and declined more slowly with maturity. Cereal/vetch mixtures had significantly (P<0.001) higher crude protein content than cereal only crops which was reflected in a positive improvement in predicted liveweight gain for weaner sheep and cattle.
