MaiaGrazing

Grazing Naturally supports the use of the MaiaGrazing software to integrate livestock and grass inventories. MaiaGrazing is used in the training and as the main vehicle for grazing management decision support. Graziers need to be able to assess the effects of feed availability on carrying capacity so that stocking rates can be matched to available feed and economic returns maintained from good stock performance.

MaiaGrazing is currently unsurpassed as a tool for organising livestock numbers, mobs, feed demand and forage assessments to match stocking rate to carrying capacity. In addition, grazing planning, monitoring and control is made simple and user friendly. The grazing chart, trend lines and rainfall analysis are utilised in forecast scenarios with MaiaGrazing, making this the ultimate tool for risk assessment and decision making.
