Lindis Peak Station

In a place that gets up to 35°C in the summer and down to -15°C in the winter, a robust crop management plan that that can hold up to these extremes when spring planting is in full swing is essential on Simon’s sheep and beef farm.

Growing not only fodder beet, but a variety of cereal silage, ryegrass and an exclusive legume allows for us to plan a winter rotation that suits the climate and diversity of Simon’s operation; naturally restoring the soil’s fertility along the way. And after one season out there in the paddock with Simon, independent testing recorded his most successful yield of fodder beet to date.
