Jon Wright: Blue-E Cattle Stud

Today we speak to Jon Wright from the Blue-E cattle stud in Woodstock NSW, the stud breeds Angus-Shorthorn Crosses with a strong focus on increasing livestock feed efficiency. We talk about why increasing feed efficiency is important and the benefits that it can provide producers with at a farm level along with the benefits it can provide the nation through reducing greenhouse gas emissions. We also talk about Jon’s grazing strategy, how he uses the data he collects on farm and the decisions he makes using that data. Finally we also talk about the impact of climate change from a marketing and market access perspective and how what we as farmers do in relation to climate change and carbon management will affect what markets we can sell into.
