Learn about the short, medium and long term impacts of poor weaner management on flock productivity.
Develop a weaner management plan for your weaners, including setting a target weaning weight, target weights at key times and feeding options.
This practical workshop will help you identify key management strategies that will assist you in improving the performance of your Merino weaners, thereby optimising their performance in your flock for their lifetime.
Workshop attendees will calculate a target weaning weight for their weaners, and set growth targets, and management strategies to maximise weaner performance and ultimately joining as hoggets. PLEASE NOTE, A DISCUSSION AROUND WEANER WEIGHT TARGETS WILL BE PART OF THE DAY'S AGENDA - A MONITOR GROUP HAS BEEN SET UP FOR THE PURPOSES OF DISCUSSION OF WEANER NUTRITION AT THIS WORKSHOP.
