Webinar for livestock producers looks at feeding for the current climate
01 November 2017
Landholders throughout the Western region can gain useful insights on how to best manage the nutritional needs of their stock through an upcoming webinar that will focus on pastoral livestock nutrition for dry times.
The webinar, which is being coordinated by Western Local Land Services and Sheep Connect NSW, will be held on Thursday, 9 November with interested participants simply needing a computer with internet connection to take part.
Despite some much needed rain during October, conditions throughout much of the Western region remain dry, and landholders are having to make tough decisions about feeding and flock management.
Western Local Land Services Team Leader – Agriculture, Gemma Turnbull hopes the webinar will be informative for landholders and assist them in managing what has so far been a challenging season.
“The webinar will cover a range of topics including identifying feeding options to suit your situation during dry times but also the period immediately after rain,” Ms Turnbull said.
“Well known pastoral consultant San Jolly is the guest presenter and will discuss how to analyse types of feed, things to be aware of and how best to maintain stock when its dry.
“There will also be the opportunity to ask San specific questions relating to your specific situation.
“We encourage all landholders to attend this webinar which can be done from home.”
The webinar will commence at 1 pm AEST on Thursday, 9 November and is free of charge.
Participants are required to register beforehand, and those unable to attend on the day will have access to a recording.
