Growth. 37 June 2012 BEYOND THE BALE ON-FARM Australian woolgrowers and the Australian sheep and lamb industry are invited to attend LambEx 2012, a two day conference being held this month in Bendigo, Victoria. The event features outstanding speakers, an extensive trade exhibition, quality entertainment and an opportunity to communicate with all sectors of the lamb supply chain. Following on from the successful launch of the LambEx phenomenon two years ago in Perth, the lamb industry will once again gather together producers, processors, researchers, wholesalers, exporters and key service providers, to celebrate all things lamb. "LambEx is like the Brownlow for the sheep industry, only more," Chair of LambEx Jason Trompf says. "It is most certainly an opportunity to celebrate and recognise those within our industry for the contributions they have made, but it is also a feast of lamb industry thinking, knowledge, planning, innovation and inspiration." 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 "Improving reproductive performance - it's now or never!" at which Jason Trompf will talk about reducing wastage around lamb survival, from scanning to weaning, against a background of the national flock's dynamics. AWI is also sponsoring the Grandslamb dinner at the end of the first day – with celebrity interviewer, BBC correspondent and wool enthusiast Michael Peschardt as the MC. LambEx is being held on 28 and 29 June at the Bendigo Showgrounds, Bendigo, Victoria. The event is sponsored by AWI, MLA, Sheep CRC, Victoria DPI, Glendemar Multi Purpose Merinos, Fairfax Agricultural Media and JBS.
