Beef Farming Agronomy

Beef farming agronomy
Total Grower Services have extensive experience in pasture systems and beef farming agronomy. We focus on soil health and the link to pasture quality and productivity gains.

One of the biggest problems facing Australian beef farmers is soil compaction. We use Petrik Soil Technology to address this problem and create stable humus which is the basis for soil health, fertility and productivity. The soil biostimulant Evergreen with its activator Green Manure Plus are ideal in pasture systems on Australian soils. In fact, these products have transformed how we approach agronomy.

Evergreen loosens the soil and allows increased water infiltration, penetration by roots and, very importantly, brings back biological activity and worms. This, in turn, improves the growth rate and digestible fibre within the pasture which then improves the rate at which edibile stock becomes ready for market.

Because Evergreen contains phosphorus solubalising and nitrogen fixing microbes, we often recommend a modified fertiliser program depending on the results of your soil test. We work across diverse systems from full organic to high intensity beef. Most producers include Petrik Soil Technology in their production system because it achieves better production with reduced inputs and improved herd health.

NSW grazier and farmer John Cordingley cut his fertiliser bill by 60% since he started using Total Grower Services beef farming agronomists a few years ago. Stewart Bulmer at Bolivia Station now grazes more than double the number of animals on the same area of land since we started agronomy in his system.
