Abstract/Summary The Cash Flow project identified substantial variation in performance and live weight production from breeding herds in northern Australia. Achievable live weight and weaner production (kg live weight/cow/yr) within country type, nominated as the 75th percentile level analysis, may be estimated from achievable steer growth. No performance measure along was highly predictive of the primary production efficiency measure, live weight production ratio (kg live weight/kg of cattle/yr). These measures can be used to formulate management. Standardised simple systems for herd performance recording are proposed to generate data that can be used to calculate a large range of herd performance and production indicators.
