Stocking Rate Worksheets

Use the optional Stocking Rate Worksheets to calculate your Dry Sheep Equivalent (DSE) per hectare. The worksheet calculates Livestock Units for other types of stock, such as cattle. 

Refer to the previous years’ Stocking Rate Worksheets to identify your farm’s benchmark and measure your farm’s continuing performance. 


 

1.    Stock Class

 

Agrimaster copies the Stock Class from the
Stock Reconciliation Worksheet

2.    Winter Number

 

Agrimaster copies the Winter Number from the
Stock Reconciliation Worksheet

3.    DSE/Hd (sheep)
Livestock Units/HD
(cattle)

 

Type the number for the amount of feed that type of stock needs. The DSE or Livestock Units may be provided by your state agricultural authority or private livestock association

4.    Total DSE (sheep)
Total Livestock Units
(cattle)

 

Agrimaster calculates the total feed requirements for each type of stock by multiplying the Winter Number x DSE/Hd

5.    Grazed Ha

 

Agrimaster copies the Winter Grazed Ha from the
Stock Reconciliation Worksheet

6.    DSE Per Ha

 

Agrimaster calculates the total feed requirements per hectare at the top of the DSE per Ha column.

 

Agrimaster gets the number by dividing the
column total for Total DSE / the column total for Grazed Ha
