About the course

The Lifetime Ewe Management program runs over the 12 month weaning to weaning cycle. The timing of each meeting is linked to critical stages in the management of the ewe’s reproductive cycle. All sessions involve a visit to each participant’s farm and focus on condition scoring, pasture assessing and feed budgeting activities that are practical and applicable to the farm business.

The program also focuses on improving producer understanding of the influence ewe nutrition has on the performance of the ewe and her progeny.

Lifetime Ewe Management provides a pathway for you to develop a successful and productive animal production system.
