This meeting is part of the popular Sheep Resilience series we have run across the country
Topics covered include:
- Flock health
- Condition scoring ewes
- Feed budget for winter
- Feeding weaned lambs
We will be getting in depth as to how you can prepare for the winter months and provide resilience to your farm by looking at:
• Flock profitability and performance can be limited by diseases such as Maedi Visna (MV) and Ovine Pulmonary Adenocarcinoma (OPA). Find out about the impacts of flock disease how to assess your flock health.
• How the drought conditions are affecting ewe body condition and if uncorrected can impact on flock fertility at mating – find out about conditions scoring ewes to enable group management of thin ewes.
• Grass and fodder supplies are under pressure affecting lamb finishing and winter feed supplies. Find out how to assess the feed stocks you have and other feed options for lambs and ewes.
