Livestock Productivity - Beef

From maximising utilisation of grass, feed efficiency and finishing early, there are various things that beef farms can implement that will help both the carbon footprint and bottom line. Ensuring production systems are efficient will help reduce emissions and strongly correlates with reduced production costs per kilogram of beef sold, increasing farm profitability.

The resources on this page provide technical guidance on implementing these changes, as well as a specialised toolkit to support those who have completed a carbon audit on knowing the best actions to take next.

Our livestock pages have more information on beef production.
