A Central Murray BestWool BestLamb co-funded initiative.
28th March 2019 - 83 people
High risk of disease lambing down in feedlot
Need more than 30m2/ewe (take consideration birth of lambs that will increase number in pen)
Run <100 twin bearing ewes in 50-100ac. Mob size max 350 lambs.
Broadcast pulse grain in paddock and provide ad lib hay and self-feeders for twin bearing ewes to decrease disturbance
Spread out feeders for twin bearing ewes
B12 & ADE shots may be beneficial for ewes this year
Providing hay increases milk fats
Feed bypass protein (sorghum, canola , cotton seed, soybean meal) 1 month from point of lambing until birth
100% of participants said they would recommend the workshop and learnt something new. * boost ewe feeding prior to lambing x2- * feed twin lambing ewes more x4 * monitor ewe numbers and rations x3 * feed requirements for lambing ewes x6 * start scanning and feeding due to needs x5 * look at containment area x2 * mix twin with single ewes just prior to lambing x2 * Geoff Duddy presents at a very 'hands on' level and very relevant to most enterprises
