The systems and cost of production research programme aims to:

  • Investigate current systems of production and identify where business improvement could improve margins.
  • Evaluate new methods to house, feed or select animals that could improve margins.

Details of our latest systems and cost of production research projects can be accessed via the menu on the left or by clicking the links below. Please select beef or sheep based on your area of interest, or email the R&D team about systems and cost of production issues.

The Stocktake/cost of production page assists beef and sheep producers to benchmark their cost of production and  help identify areas for improvement.
