  • Develop a weaner management plan for your weaners, including setting a target weaning weight, target weights at key times, and feeding options.
  • This practical workshop will help you identify key management strategies that will assist you in improving the performance of your Merino weaners, thereby optimising their performance in your flock for their lifetime.
  • Discuss practical early weaning, confinement feeding and develop feed budgets and plans for the coming season

Please note, a pastures for weaners walk will take place at Ferndale as an add on to the main workshop material.
