Managing Your Ewes Nutrition

Join us at the Minnipa Ewe Nutrition Workshop

About

This interactive workshop will focus on some of the key principles of managing your ewe’s nutritional requirements whilst maintaining soil cover and prevent soil erosion. The day will cover:

  • Changing ewe nutritional requirements over a production year
  • Feed budgeting
  • Filling the autumn feed gap
  • Condition scoring ewes
  • Pasture assessment

The day will also be an opportunity to connect with other women involved in farming while learning how to care for your livestock and farming soils.
