Breeding herds in the Burdekin catchment are due for a shake up following a string of training opportunities for graziers in recent months with more to come.

Maximising calf output and minimising the costs to do so, have been the theme across a range of events, including:

  • Reproductive performance and pregnancy testing workshops at Bowen and Greenvale – delivered by NQ Dry Tropics featuring well know veterinarian, Ian Braithwaite
  • Bull Selection workshops at Mt Coolon and Dotswood – delivered by the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries Beef Extension team with guest presenter, John Bertram
  • Breeding EDGE at Belyando – delivered by Felicity Hamlyn-Hill (Beef Enterprise Advisory Services Pty Ltd), Tim Emery (Department of Agriculture and Fisheries) and Dr Geoffrey Fordyce ACV & BULLCHECK accredited vet
