Here to help - More Livestock Feeding sessions planned
06 June 2018
South East Local Land Services is holding more Livestock Feeding information sessions to support producers and help them make good decisions at this stressful time.
“Conditions across the South East have been a concern for a while now” said South East Local Land Services Senior Agriculture Advisor Matt Lieschke.
“Producers across the region are facing some tough decisions, and at times like these it is really important that they have the information to make the right decisions for their enterprises”.
The information sessions will cover supplementary and full hand feeding strategies for winter as well as pasture and animal health considerations.
Information sessions will be held in Binalong on June 8, Yass on June 15, Delegate on June 21 and Braidwood on June 27.
These follow on from events already held in Goulburn, Moss Vale, Delegate, Primrose Valley, Peelwood, Narrawa, Bigga, Gunning, Frogmore, Candelo and Cooma.
“We’ve had a strong response to the events to date, people are obviously pretty keen to get some more information to help them out, but also to get together and have a chat.” Matt said.
Representatives from the Rural Adversity Mental Health Program and the Rural Resilience Program have been on hand at some of the sessions to have a chat with attendees and provide support as required.
To find out more about the upcoming information sessions visit the events page on the South East Local Land Services website or Facebook page, or call your nearest Local Land Services office.
