Argyll Women in Agriculture Group: Managing Sheep Flocks


The first of our new Tiree Women in Agriculture events will focus on a year with sheep, grassland management and record keeping.

Across two days we will be joined by SAC Sheep and Grassland Consultant, Poppy Frater where we will cover a variety of topics under the above themes.

Saturday 21st: We will focus this session on sheep and the annual management requirements for a flock including nutrition, condition scoring and health management.

Sunday 22nd: The morning session will focus on livestock record keeping. A refresher on what is required and some top tips to ensure you have no issues should you be selected for a livestock inspection. The afternoon session will be Grassland focused.

There will be practical, outdoor sessions as well as indoor, theory lead sections.

You are welcome to attend the whole weekend event or individual days.
