R & D QUANTIFIED

SHADE AND SHELTER

  • Two new research projects will examine the impacts of shade and shelter in commercial feedlots in southern production regions.
  • Previous research has demonstrated shade effects on feedlot cattle performance in Queensland.
  • A unique aspect of this research is it will examine the value proposition of covered housing systems which are increasing in popularity.

The benefits of shade and shelter on feedlot cattle in temperate climates will be examined through two new research projects in Victoria and WA to build on past MLA research.

MLA has previously funded projects to demonstrate shade effects on feedlot cattle performance in Queensland, however, the impacts of shade and shelter in commercial feedlots in southern production regions have not been examined.

Prixcar recently engaged Netpro Canopies to install our latest hail netting canopy in Altona Victoria. Netpro installed one of their Flat UB3 canopies which is performing very well. We found the team at Netpro to be extremely professional and obliging, they worked in well with our operations and endeavoured to make sure all our requirements were met.
