BredWell FedWell comes to the Mid Murray

25 October 2023

Beef producers in the Mid Murray now have the opportunity to participate in Meat & Livestock Australia’s (MLA) BredWell FedWell workshop on 17 November 2023. Focussed on profit driver’s, the workshop zooms in on how to make the most out of genetics and nutrition to have a positive impact on your bottom line.

BredWell FedWell, which follow’s the annual production cycle, lifts the lid on recent research and helps producers apply the outcomes of genetics and nutrition research within their businesses.

Sponsored by the Barossa Improved Grazing Group (BIGG) and Nutrien, the interactive, on-farm workshop will be held at Bottlesford Murray Greys, Tungkillo, hosted by Gerald, Jeannette and Darren Koopman and delivered by Jake Phillips of Angus Australia on 17 November. This sponsorship means the cost of workshop is reduced from $200 to $140 per person.

Darren is excited to invite producers to Bottlesford for the on-day workshop. “A highlight of the day is that producers have the opportunity to compare bulls in the yards with and without BREEDPLAN Estimated Breeding Values (EBVs) and consider what this might mean for their own business” Darren said. Producers can then take what they learn and apply this directly to their own enterprises.

During the workshop, attendees also examine their own feed supply and demand and critically consider their approaches to feeding to maximise their genetic investment.

Producers will come away with skills to:

  • help them develop a customised breeding plan aligned to their profit drivers;
  • identify sires and select animals that help meet their breeding objective; and
  • plan to feed their animals to achieve their breeding objective.

The refreshed, highly visual and easy to follow workshop is achieving unprecedented reviews from attendees around Australia with it rating 9 out of 10 each for satisfaction and value and 100% indicating they’d recommend it to other producers. Now is the time for South Australian producers to share in the action.

Places are strictly limited so be sure to register soon to avoid disappointment.
