Local Land Services is running a series of workshops focusing on confinement feeding.
The workshop will cover topics such as;
- What is a confinement feeding area and why would I need one
- Selecting the right site
- Facilities – what infrastructure do you need and how to set them up
- Management of livestock for best results
- Nutrition, practical applications – dos and don’ts
- Minimising health problems and performance
Funding is available to assist landholders in building confinement feeding infrastructure. It is important to note that to be eligible for funding landholders must attend one of the workshops.
There will be a field trip in the afternoon to look at a confinement feeding area.
Each session will run from 9.30am to 3.30pm and include morning tea and lunch.
Note: participants must register before the event.
