Western Local Land Services is encouraging all landholders and community members to attend one of its upcoming livestock nutrition in dry times workshops as tough seasonal conditions continue throughout much of the Western region.
The workshops, which will be held from 18 to 21 June at Mossgiel, Anabranch, Tilpa and Packsaddle, will be presented by the widely regarded Geoff Duddy, who is the owner and manager of Sheep Solutions and has over 30 years of experience in the industry.

- the foundations of feeding
- maintenance vs production feeding
- comparing feed types
- feed test interpretation
- animal health concerns during dry periods.
Western Local Land Services Team Leader – Agriculture, Gemma Turnbull was thrilled to have someone as knowledgeable as Mr Duddy confirmed as the presenter.
“Geoff brings a wealth of knowledge and is the ideal person to be running these workshops,” Ms Turnbull said.
“There will be a lot of great information on offer for landholders and we encourage them to bring along any questions about livestock feeding to ask Geoff.”
