Livestock Feeding workshop for Southern Highlands producers
24 May 2018
South East Local Land Services is holding a Livestock Feeding workshop in Moss Vale on Friday 1 June. The workshop will help support producers and land managers who need information about supplementary and full hand feeding strategies during winter.
“Conditions mean that producers and land managers have had to make some tough decisions regarding stock management in recent times” said Local Land Services Senior Agriculture Advisor Matthew Lieschke.
“With the onset of winter and little or no improvement in conditions on the horizon, land managers and producers will have a lot to think about, we want to let them know that we’re here to help”.
The workshop will cover:
- nutritional feeding requirements
- feeding stock – how much and when
- feeding in containment paddocks
- pasture considerations
- animal health considerations
- assistance available.
The workshop will provide useful information and a welcome opportunity to get together as a community.
