A series of beef information days will be held
across the region in February and beef producers
are invited to attend. Industry consultant Jeff
House, of Jeff House Livestock, will be talking to
producers about some of the key aspects around
weaning, with field days scheduled at:
Crookwell – 14 February
Braidwood – 15 February
Nimmitabel – 16 February
Boorowa – 17 February
While weaning may appear to be a fairly simple
task, Matt Lieschke (Livestock Officer with South
East Local Land Services) says a number of
things need to be considered to ensure the best
outcome possible. “Concerns around weaning
generally include when to wean, what method to
use, how long to wean for, what supplements to
use and at what rate. This will all be covered on
Successful weaning is all about implementing a
strategy that minimises stress and any potential
setbacks to calf growth. “Weaning affects whole-
farm profitability in a number of ways, so it’s
important to have a good program in place. At
each farm we will be having a close look at the
weaning method used, type of infrastructure,
animal health treatments and nutritional
management. This will include a paddock walk to
look at the type of feed weaners are likely to be
grazing and the level of supplementation needed
to achieve growth targets” said Mr Lieschke.
Over the years Mr House has worked with beef
producers in areas of breeding, genetic selection,
cattle assessment, nutrition and meat quality.
“Last year we ran a number of field days with Jeff
and the feedback was extremely positive, so it’s
great to have him back again” said Mr Lieschke.

RAMping up Repro workshops
Sheep Connect NSW, and workshop partners Zoetis
and Holmes Sackett conducted a series of hands
on, practical and interactive workshops throughout
Southern and Central areas of NSW last week..
These were hands on, practical workshops aimed
squarely at providing best practice information
around pre-joining ram preparation.
Producers heard from industry experts, such as
Veterinarian Matt Playford, Dawbuts on:
• How and when to complete pre-joining ram
inspections – a practical session
• What to look for when inspecting rams for
soundness (events run on-farm)
• What factors impact on the performance of your
• Practical implications of management on ram
• Ram cost per lamb and how to make sound ram
The local event was held at Gunningrah, Bombala
Co-ordinator, David Brown of Holmes Saackett,
said “The Bombala workshop was great – we had
a good turn out and the practical sessions aimed at
relevant skill development was executed excellently.
Participants were asked fore and aft how confident
they were to inspect rams to identify issues affecting
their fertility, and there was a 50 percent increase in
confidence over the course of the workshop.
“Also average satisfaction with the quality and
relevance of the workshop content was 8/10,
testament to the design and execution of the day.
“Overall I feel it was an excellent example of
across industry collaboration to execute an excellent
Sheep Connect event that paid dividends for
attending producers. A vast majority of producers
felt that the workshop was worth greater than $1000
to their business, evidence of this.
