You are invited to attend a new series of one of the sheep industry’s most popular extension and adoption programs, It’s Ewe Time. A joint initiative of Meat & Livestock Australia and Australian Wool Innovation, the forums are part of the flagship Making More from Sheep program.
These forums are being rolled out in August and are designed to increase producer awareness of the principles, practices and tools of sheep enterprise profitability and productivity. They will deliver information to help producers grow 10% more wool, achieve 10% more carcase value and produce 10% more lambs per hectare.
The forums will be half-day events at Ceduna on August 2, Kimba on August 3 and Cummins on August 4, featuring a range of specialist livestock presenters including Andrew Thompson, Murdoch University, WA, and SA consultants Hamish Dickson, Ken Solly and Simon Vogt.
Topics to be covered include sheepmeat and wool market outlooks, supply opportunity and challenges, managing high performing ewes to wean more lambs, animal health, feed base options and enterprise planning and structure.
The forums will have a clear practice-change focus and will point interested producers to many of the extension and adoption tools available through MLA and AWI.
