Livestock producers will be able to tap into practical research to improve their production in an online and interactive Forum to be hosted by the Graham Centre for Agricultural Innovation on Friday 31 July.
The program includes producers sharing their experiences, panel discussions with industry experts and new beef and sheep industry research that can be applied directly on-farm.
Key topics for discussion include containment feeding, sheep reproduction, genetic benchmarking in the merino industry, dual purpose mixes and cover cropping, extracting more value from cull cows and multi-breed genomic evaluation in beef cattle.
During this time of isolation it’s important to stay connected and keep up-to-date with industry advancements and there’ll be plenty of opportunities to network with other producers and the researchers in the interactive online platform.
The Forum will be held from 9am to 1pm on Friday 31 July and will cost $10 to attend.
Registrations will open soon and people can sign up for alerts about the Forum or for more information contact Toni Nugent on 0418 974 775.
The 2020 Forum is supported by Meat & Livestock Australia, Local Land Services Riverina, Animal Health Australia, ProWay Livestock Equipment and Sheep Connect NSW.
The Graham Centre is a research alliance between Charles Sturt University and the NSW Department of Primary Industries.
