Updated Terms and Conditions

Recently we sent a letter to all subscribers outlining the updated terms and conditions for accessing Sheep Genetics. Included with the letter was a form to update your web listings for Animals and Contact details. We would like all breeders to complete this form and return as soon as possible to ensure that details are correctly displaying on the website. If you have not received the form you can download a copy off the website.
 

Matesel Training Course

The next round of Matesel training has been flagged for the 19th and 20th of September in Armidale. There will be limited positions available so anyone is interested you will need to email us to be included on the list.
 

Dashboard and Tools Menu

We encourage all breeders to go to the LAMBPLAN or MERINOSELECT search pages and login. Once logged in you can access your dashboard to track your genetic gain, add website details and download reports and breeding values.
Your login will be your 6 digit breed and flock code, and the password will be the combination of letters and numbers found on the subject line of your reports emails.
If you are having issues logging in please contact us for assistance.

Bred Well Fed Well Workshops

The highly successful Bred Well Fed Well (BWFW) workshops are on again ahead of this year’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.
 
MLA’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.
