2019 Spring Sheep Optimiser workshops will cover a range of sheep management topics including weaners, feeding sheep over summer and animal health.
• Weaner Management – They can be a tricky mob to manage and need some extra care. So, what should we be doing for our weaners to keep them in prime condition and ensure they achieve the best production rates possible? Georgia Reid from AgPro Management will be covering this topic.
• Feeding Sheep Over Summer – Summer and autumn are the hardest to make sure sheep have their feed requirements supplied and can be a crucial period for ensuring ideal condition score is achieved to allow for a productive following season. Mark Allington from Icon Agriculture will be walking us through sheep feed requirements and how to make sure we are prepared for the dry season.
• Animal Health & Water Requirements – What are some of the main animal health issues that we need to be aware of and how can we help to minimise the occurrence and severity in our flocks? Also, quality water is important for good sheep production, so what exactly do we need to make sure our water supply is providing.
