Bred Well Fed Well Workshops
The highly successful Bred Well Fed Well (BWFW) workshops are on again ahead of this yearâ€™s spring ram sales, to give producers additional knowledge, skills and tools to determine the traits they want to improve the productivity and profitability of their flocks.
The practical, one-day BWFW workshops are funded by Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) to help sheep producers combine genetics decision-making with ewe nutrition management to boost reproduction rates and productivity.
MLAâ€™s General Manager Livestock Productivity, Dr Jane Weatherley, is encouraging breeders using Australian Sheep Breeding Values (ASBVs) to volunteer to host an on-farm workshop.
For more information about hosting a workshop contact Bred Well Fed Well co-ordinator Serina Hancock at S.Hancock@murdoch.edu.au or phone 0403 570 823.
Reminder - Please update to our new address and contact details
As previously advised last year we moved office space to accommodate the extra MLA staff that were now based out of Armidale. With that we obtained new address and phone numbers, please use these as the redirects on phone and post have now ended.
