Lifetime Ewe Management
Set your Ewes up for Success
Undertaking the Lifetime Ewe Managements= course gives you the skills and support to make feeding and managing your ewes easier. This nationally run course is ideal for a small group of 5 – 7 participants who are interested in learning new ways to find success on their farm. Your group will meet 6 times within 12 months. Lead by an expereinced trainer you will learn how to condition score, prepare ewes for joining, manage singles and twin-bearing ewes at different stages of their reproductive cycle, assess pasture & set targets.
Lifetime Ewe Mangement is a practical based course delivered on farm. We encourage you to contact like-minded neighbours and farmers in your local area to form a group, and a Trainer will come to you to deliver the LTEM course.
The cost of LTEM is $2,400 plus GST per participant. Australian Wool Innovation offers eligible woolgrowers a subsidy of $1,000 bringing the course cost to $1,400 plus GST per participant.
