Webinar to shed light on kid loss causes

05 September 2023

Goat producers – this is your opportunity to learn more about the factors causing kid loss and management strategies to improve outcomes. Recent research has estimated the scale of kid loss to the goat industry could be as high as $1.45 million per year – a significant cost to the industry. This is a major hit to goat producers’ bottom line. 

This free Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) Goat Roadshow Webinar will be held on Wednesday 4 October and will feature NSW Department of Primary Industry’s research scientist Dr Gordon Refshauge, and producers James Boland and Craig Stewart. The presenters will provide research insights and practical tips of what can be done on-farm to manage weight and condition, nutritional requirements, environmental factors and disease for better outcomes. 

Join us at this online workshop to learn more about perinatal kid loss causes, pregnant doe nutritional requirements and management tips for optimal doe health.
