Landholders in the Western region have until Monday 6 March to register for the sheep nutrition and breeding workshop.

The free one-day workshop, which will be held in Milparinka on Thursday 9 March and was organised in conjunction with Meat and Livestock Australia, will offer value to landholders that want to maximise livestock production and profitability.

Some of the topics that will be covered include the nutritional requirements of sheep of all classes and achieving production goals within a rangeland environment.

Senior Land Services Officer, Mitch Plumbe does not want landholders to miss the opportunity to gain valuable insights into how to meet their stocks nutritional needs and gain a better understanding of what role genetics play.

“Landholders appreciate the value in workshops such as this as they can see clear potential to maximise production and profitability.”

Productive Nutrition’s San Jolly, who is highly regarded in this industry throughout the Southern rangelands, will present the workshop.

Ms Jolly will touch on a number of topics including the role genetics play in animal production, identifying the traits most important to your enterprise, understanding Australian Sheep Breeding Values and establishing breeding objectives
