Quality Wool hosted a Bred Well Fed Well workshop in Alectown for farmers last week. Hosted by Bernard and Elizabeth Dwyer, 18 participants attended the intensive oneday workshop. Facilitated by Dr Jason Trompf from JT
Agri-Source, the day combined presentations as well as hands-on practical sessions, designed to equip producers with practical tools to optimise reproduction and profitability in their ewe flocks.
Producers got to try their hand at included condition scoring, feed budgeting, ram rankings and ram selection, with follow-up courses in these areas offered for those wishing to further develop skills in breeding and nutritional management. A number of attendees indicated they’d like to participate in the Ewe Lifetime Management
program going forward.
A joint initiative between Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) and Australian Wool Innovation (AWI), Bred Well Fed Well workshops aim to help commercial producers, stock agents and many others to advance their skills in ram selection using Australian Sheep Breeding Values (ASBVs).
