Free livestock forums are being held in August and September to help producers rebuild the state’s sheep flock and beef herd.

The forums will bring vets and livestock production specialists together to focus on business and production methods to increase livestock numbers. A local producer will also share their strategies and experiences.

In the forum you will have the chance to develop ways to expand your flock and herd. We will help you with resources to help achieve your plans.

Forum topics and speakers

  • Strategies to increase livestock numbers – Nathan Scott, Achieve Ag
  • Maximising reproductive performance through healthier breeders – Deb Scammell, Talking Livestock
  • Understanding cattle and sheep pregnancy diseases – Dr Sean McGrath, Millicent Veterinary Clinic
  • Maximising lamb and calf numbers and productivity – Dr Jason Trompf, Livestock Consultant. J.T. Agri-Source.
