From cattle management to improving the profitability of mixed sheep and cropping enterprises, the Graham Centre for Agricultural Innovation’s livestock forum in July will link the latest research to on-farm outcomes.
The Centre’s annual beef and sheep forums are combined this year on Wednesday 4 July as part of the producer day at national Animal Production 2018 conference.
The program kicks off with a session on tailoring the diets of livestock systems to boost productivity and provide flow-on benefits for consumers.
Other sessions throughout the day will focus on the economics of sheep and cattle production, sheep health and innovation in the meat processing sector.
The $55 cost for producers includes morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. Register to attend the livestock forum by Wednesday 20 June.
The event is part of the Australian Society of Animal Production’s biennial Animal Production 2018 Conference which will be held at Charles Sturt University (CSU) from Monday 2 July to Wednesday 4 July.
Conference organising committee chairman and Graham Centre Director Professor Michael Friend said it is the only multi-species animal science conference of its kind in Australia.
“From sheep, beef and dairy production, to goats, pigs, poultry and emerging animal industries, this conference has animal production covered,” Professor Friend said.
“It’s a unique opportunity for industry to meet, exchange information and ideas, discuss the latest advances in animal science and production, and develop ways of promoting industry development and scientific endeavour.
"Charles Sturt University and the Graham Centre for Agricultural Innovation are pleased to partner with the Society to sponsor and host the conference."
