At Mobble we service farmers all over Australia and New Zealand, where stocking units are different depending on where you farm. Northern Australian cattle farms often use the cattle Livestock Unit (LSU). In contrast, producers from southern Aus will use the Dry Sheep Equivalent (DSE) unit, and New Zealand farmers often use the Ewe Equivalent (EE) unit. That's why we've made these DSE calculator tables to assist you in making calculations.
These online tables below can be used to calculate the stocking rates for sheep, cattle, goats, kangaroos, rabbits and horses on your enterprise. Best of luck - we hope it helps!
Note: the New Zealand EE is very similar to the Australian DSE for sheep, so we have simplified and combined the two under the DSE unit.
Information sourced from RCS Australia resource toolbox - for more in depth tables we recommend you go to the RCS website and download the free AU (Animal Unit) DSE calculator.
