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?

This workshop will help you to manage your pasture and supplement throughout the seasons and develop a nutrition management plan for your property. Topics covered include:

  • Practical cattle nutrition
  • Cattle nutritional requirements
  • Reading supplement labels
  • Understanding supplement ingredients
  • Cost analysis of supplements
  • Feeding management
  • Animal health and welfare considerations

Smoko and lunch will be provided. Please bring labels and information on lick products you are currently feeding to help build your own property nutrition management plan. If you have any grasses or weeds you need identified bring them along too!
