A national symposium on the causes of calf loss and what can be done to minimise them.
Calf loss in beef breeding herds is a global problem causing reduced liveweight production and lower profitability. Large studies in recent times have shown the major risk factors to be very different to that which cause calf loss in intensive or temperate region cattle systems.
Join us for this symposium, featuring respected international and Australian specialists, to discuss what causes calf loss and the opportunities available to manage cows for improved reproductive performance and productivity in northern Australia. Receive updates on new research testing options for reducing calf loss in north Australian beef herds.
Cost $100 per person (includes all meals and Friday evening dinner and entertainment).
Registrations close 10 November 2017.
