Oestrogenic clovers – identification and remediation (webinar)

05 May 2021 08:00PM - 05 May 2021 09:00PM

Sheep Sheep

Location: Online

Recent surveys conducted in the medium to high rainfall zones of southern Australia have found that old cultivars of subterranean clover remain common in many pastures. Some of these cultivars contain high levels of oestrogenic compounds which can negatively impact sheep health. Kevin Foster, from the University of Western Australia, will take the audience through:

  • How does grazing highly oestrogenic sub clovers affect livestock?
  • Which cultivars are high in oestrogens?
  • How do you manage a paddock if you suspect a problem?
