Feed planning at workshops

By Country News

Beef and sheep producers have been invited to explore and plan their options for feeding livestock through winter at morning workshops in Seymour on Thursday and Wangaratta on Friday.

Livestock specialists from Agriculture Victoria will provide a hands-on session and useful resources to help producers identify options for managing their livestock through winter.

Topics to be covered include pasture availability and winter growth rates, assessing fodder and grain reserves, nutritional requirements of different livestock classes and feed budgeting.

The Seymour workshop will be held at the DELWP office, and the Wangaratta workshop at the Council Chambers Government Centre. Both workshops run from 12.30pm and light refreshments will be provided.
