The Monaro has had a dry winter and very late start to spring, leaving land managers with a few key questions to answer. How much pasture is available and what is its nutritional value? What is the fat score of your breeding herd through joining? What are your finishing options?
Following recent rain this workshop will consider practical options including local pasture assessments, feeding, stock numbers, weaning, animal health issues and how to balance these in relation to the summer outlook for cattle and sheep.
