Comments:
Since being put together through the 90's, the owners of "West Mooculta" have transitioned away from cotton to now focus wholly on beef production. Under the current ownership, "West Mooculta" has been utilising winter cropping strategies to enable feed availability to better match production requirements. This has resulted in less water usage, greater success with fodder cropping and in doing so increasing the carrying capacity of the property.
