Supplementing the diet of your livestock with key missing nutrients can provide a remarkable return on investment. But how do you know you are providing your animals what they need and not more of what they already have?

In this 3-part webinar series, Department of Agriculture and Fisheries’ Extension Officers Mick Sullivan and Kylie Hopkins, will discuss the management and practicalities of sensible supplementation, including:

• Planning an effective supplementation program
• Establishing your management objectives (maintenance or production feeding?)
• What you need to provide to reach your goal and how to feed it

Join us at 12:30pm (Qld time) on these dates for:

1 September 2021: Sensible Supplementation 1 – Beef cattle nutrition principles
8 September 2021: Sensible Supplementation 2 – Herd management and nutrition
15 September 2021: Sensible Supplementation 3 – Choosing and managing supplements
