Abstract: A farming systems and rotations trial was conducted at Minnipa on the Eyre Peninsula of South Australia between 1995 and 2001. The results have been presented to local farmers as simple gross margin comparisons (with a relatively low value for the pasture phase if present) in extension publications. The results are reassessed in terms of increased livestock return, and allowing for permanent/family labour and machinery overheads. The relative risk vs return is also considered to explain the acceptance of the research by local farmers.
