Beyond the Bale : June 2016
ON FARM 35 Australian woolgrowers and the Australian sheep and lamb industry are invited to attend LambEx 2016, a three-day event being held in August in Albury, NSW. The expo will focus on an array of local and global issues influencing the Australian sheep and lamb industry and will feature outstanding international and Australian speakers. Topics cover investment in genetics and perennial pastures, management costs and target feeding for strong lambing percentages, boosting production gains through genetics and farming in an ever- variable climate. As well as presentations from farmers, researchers and consultants, there will be entertaining and inspirational stories from former world champion marathon runner Robert De Castella and adventurers Cas and Jonesy. “LambEx attracts more than 900 delegates and 70 exhibitors and is a great opportunity to promote NSW’s world-class lamb industry,” Chairman of LambEx Rodney Watts says. “All sectors of the lamb industry have come together to build on the event’s previous success and ensure the Australian sheep and lamb industry continues its proud tradition of showcasing its industry.” As a co-sponsor of LambEx, AWI has the opportunity to promote the role of Merinos within lamb enterprises and influence sheep producers who might not normally associate with Merino or wool enterprises. It is also important for lamb producers to see the value of Merinos contributing to the rebuilding of the national flock. AWI is sponsoring a session ‘Bring the paddock to life’ at which: consultant Jason Trompf will challenge ewe management and productivity, woolgrower Vicky Geddes will show how investment in genetics and perennial pastures has facilitated growth in her predominantly Merino enterprise, and Paraway Pastoral Group’s manager at ‘Borambil’ Matt Browning will tell how they have achieved a 10-year average of more than 110% lambs marked to ewes joined. The two main LambEx conference days are 11 and 12 August, with registration and welcome events from 4pm until 8pm on 10 August. Pre-conference tours are also available on 10 August. Fees apply to attend LambEx. MORE INFORMATION Visit www.lambex.com.au to view the program and register.
