During September there are several Bred Well Fed Well workshops being held in South Australia.

 

These free, one-day workshops are supported by Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA), Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) and the Sheep Cooperative Research Centre (Sheep CRC) as a part of a national program to increase sheep industry productivity.

The Bred Well Fed Well workshop will provide practical training on how to use superior genetics and achieve improved reproductive performance from better feed management.

The workshop focuses on the following:

  • improved understanding on how to use ASBVs to improve enterprise profitability;
  • how to develop a breeding objective for your sheep enterprise;
  • better management of ewe nutrition for reproductive performance and flock profitability; and
  • skills in developing simple energy budgets for the ewe flock.

 

Practical sessions include condition scoring, feed budgeting, ram rankings and ram selection. Follow-up courses in these areas will be offered for those wishing to further develop skills in breeding and nutritional management.
