This project has identified there is huge promise in the harvesting system, however a more detailed investigation is required to realise the full potential of the system. Future research should focus on scientific analysis and expand the project to use cattle as the main livestock enterprise to assess the benefits of the system on a farm that is highly cattle focused (dairy or beef). Overall, this system and process is one that Scott Hassall will continue to use in the future. We believe other farmers should adopt the idea and utilise in their own farming systems.
