Webinar to offer answers for producers on all their unusual livestock feeding questions
21 May 2018
Landholders throughout the Western region and further afield are being encouraged to attend an upcoming webinar that will give an overview of some of the more unusual feed options available and some of the pros and cons associated with them.
The funny feeds webinar, which is being coordinated by Western Local Land Services and Sheep Connect NSW, will be held on Tuesday, 29 May with interested participants simply needing a computer with internet connection to take part.
The webinar will feature a presentation from the widely respected Geoff Duddy, who is the owner and manager of Sheep Solutions.
Mr Duddy has spent over 30 years servicing regional, state and national sheep and wool producer enquiries, specialising in sheep meat production, new and introduced sheep breeds, pasture and grain-based finishing systems and marketing.
Western Local Land Services Team Leader – Agriculture, Gemma Turnbull hopes landholders can make the time to attend the webinar as it may offer them some new feeding options or dispel some of the misunderstanding surrounding by-product feeding or less common feed types.
“Landholders that have been feeding for a considerable time have been making enquiries as to other potential feeding options for their stock,” Ms Turnbull said.
“This webinar will answer all those questions and offer some great advice with regards to stock feeding, while there will also be an opportunity for landholders to ask questions of Geoff after his presentation.”
The webinar will commence at 1 pm AEST on Tuesday, 29 May and is free of charge.
