Beyond the Bale : March 2019
ON FARM 53 JOIN THE THOUSANDS OF aussie FARMerS SWITCHING TO CLIPEX ® FENCING & STOCKYARDS Clipex® Sheep Handler $28,589 Contractor Model FREE FOOT PEDAL Valued at $1,430 limited time offer visit CLIPEX.COM.AU or call1800 65 77 66 One of the sheep industry’s most popular extension and adoption programs, It’s ewe time!, has returned in 2019 with a series of forums in Victoria, NSW and South Australia. The half-day forums showcase practical tools and information to help sheep producers improve productivity and profitability. They are designed to deliver timely and practical tips and tools for on-farm practices and flock management. Ongoing drought conditions across parts of Australia’s sheep production regions have been challenging for many producers; however, the wool and sheepmeat markets have remained resilient. It’s ewe time! will help producers tailor their management to seasonal conditions, prepare and plan for the year ahead, and maximise returns. Three forums have already been held (Birchip and Benalla in Victoria and Deniliquin in NSW) with four further forums scheduled on the following dates: • 26 March – Jamestown, South Australia • 27 March – Karoonda, South Australia • 28 March – Naracoorte, South Australia • 2 April – Armidale, NSW The cost is $35 per person to attend, which includes a forum booklet, morning tea and lunch. For further information or to register, visit www.makingmorefromsheep.com.au/ events or call the AWI Helpline on 1800 070 099. A joint initiative of AWI and MLA, the forums are part of the flagship Making More From Sheep program. PAST PRESENTATIONS AVAILABLE NOW Available on the Making More From Sheep website now (at www. makingmorefromsheep.com.au/ presentations) are the presentations from last year’s It’s ewe time! forums. Presentations from some of the events were recorded, so people can listen to the presenter and follow along with the slides at the same time. Topics include: • Managing ewes in dry times • Maximising lamb and weaner performance • Your sheep health is your wealth • Effective integration of livestock and cropping • Making sustainable financing choices • Animal welfare market signals and non- mulesed case study. MORE INFORMATION: www.makingmorefromsheep.com.au The popular It’s ewe time! forums are again being held this year, run as part of the AWI and MLA funded Making More From Sheep program. IT’S EWE TIME!
