Improve the maternal efficiency of your sheep
6 February 2018
Avoca BESTWOOL/BESTLAMB group will open its doors to all farmers this Thursday with Agriculture Victoria sheep specialist Andrew Kennedy discussing maternal efficiency in the sheep industry.
Mr Kennedy will provide insight into the performance of both Merino and crossbred ewes in terms of maternal efficiency and will look at the types of breeding traits that should be considered to ensure sustainability into the future.
Avoca BESTWOOL/BESTLAMB facilitator Neil James said the evening would provide farmers with an opportunity to hear the latest information and discuss how the information presented compares with their own experiences.
The Avoca BESTWOOL/BESTLAMB group is currently inviting new members to join. Mr James said the evening would give graziers a chance to see how a BESTWOOL/BESTLAMB group operates and how it might benefit their business.
"BESTWOOL/BESTLAMB is a unique and innovative network that provides a framework for sheep produces to improve their farming business," he said.
"Group meetings provide self-directed learning opportunities for members, which allows them to address the issues and priorities that matter to them.
"BESTWOOL/BESTLAMB gives producers a forum to exchange information and to systematically build on previous experiences and knowledge."
As well as providing access to industry specialists and the latest research and information, Mr James said the key to the BESTWOOL/BESTLAMB program is the opportunity it gives farmers to discuss and share their issues with other farmers.
The maternal efficiency presentation will be delivered at the Victoria Hotel, 138 High Street, Avoca on 8 February 2018.
The presentation will start at 7.30pm, however all are invited to enjoy dinner beforehand at 6.30pm (meals at own cost).
