Anne Collins is the principal of AC Ag Consulting and has nearly 30 years’ experience working with livestock industries in Australia.

Anne’s particular areas of interest include sheep breeding and genetics, reproduction efficiency, technology adoption and data management. She recently completed a three-year MLA funded PDS project “Maximising Dorper Reproductive Performance”, working with a group of producers on the far west coast of SA to find ways to increase the reproductive efficiency of their self-replacing Dorper flocks.

In 2022, Anne joined forces with the University of Adelaide to successfully tender for the MLA Donor Company funded project, “Quantifying and improving reproductive performance of shedding sheep”.

This webinar will cover:

  • Understanding weaning rate as a key profit driver in a shedding sheep business
  • Fit to join assessment of ewes and rams
  • Cost effective management practices to increase reproduction rate.
