Weaner management – Planning for performance

Weaning is one of the most crucial management interventions in a beef operation, regardless of season.

Farmer’s Veterinary Service and Zoetis invite you to this informative and practical workshop.

Developed by Australia’s leading vets, cattle specialists and rural business experts, ReproActive is an outstanding workshop series designed to help maximise the reproductive and productive potential of beef herds.

  • Paul Williams, Tropical Beef Technology Services: Making use of genetic technologies to improve the bottom line
