Sheep Genetics Regional Forum – Wagga Wagga

  • Where: Wagga Wagga, NSW
  • When: 23 June 2022, 9:00am
  • Cost: $22

Each year, Sheep Genetics run a series of regional workshops across Australia so breeders can keep updated on enhancements to the analysis, learn how to get the most out of their breeding program and speak directly to Sheep Genetics staff.

The workshops are not specifically LAMBPLAN or MERINOSELECT workshops but aimed at a mixed audience, of all breeds, and for both long term and new clients.

Head along to learn how to best use genetic technologies to further your clients’ business.

MLA MeatUp Forums aim to deliver updates on the latest red meat research, development and extension programs, highlight research outputs that have relevance to the local area and production systems, showcase leading producers and better connect individuals and businesses in the red meat industry.
