Information session for livestock producers
Dealing with a variable climate is challenging for livestock producers. The Far South Coast has had a dry winter and very late start to spring. Recent rain has eased the situation, but the practical options covered in this workshop will help you prepare for the next dry period. The workshop will focus on beef and sheep, covering:
pasture assessment and measurement
options for and economics of supplementary feeding
animal health and condition
market options and outlook
rural resilience and financial counselling.
