Customised climate forecasting for lot-feeder

The University of Southern Queensland has been engaged by lot-feeder Mort & Co to provide a customised climate forecasting service to help it better manage risk in its business, which includes cattle, cereals and cotton.

“This sort of customised climate forecasting is based on a three-month risk assessment, which might say an El Nino is likely to bring drought or challenging conditions to eastern Australia, but above-average seasonal conditions for the US, India or China,” USQ International Centre for Applied Climate Sciences climate scientist Dave McRae said.

“As a big commodity producer and consumer, that’s quite important to Mort & Co because of their exposure to international beef and feedgrain prices.”

You can read more about it in the Queensland Country Life or at the University of Southern Queensland.
