Bred Well Fed Well Workshops

Bredwell Fedwell Beef  is a practical one day workshop which highlights the key production benefits of genetics, combined with optimum feed management for improved reproduction and farm profit.  To date it has received rave reviews from attending producers along the lines of  ‘Best one day workshop I have ever attended’ from one veteran cattle producer. The aim of the workshop is to get all participants to develop a greater understanding of selection intensity and assist them to develop a breeding objective which suits “their” production system, using percentile band table cut offs for traits which are important to them. The beef workshops build on the success of the BWFW sheep program and are designed to enhance the use of genetic technology and increase the number of producers utilising this technology.
The workshops were developed by a number of key people within the industry including Drs Jason Trompf, Rod Manning, Peter McGilchrist and Chris Mirams. MLA have provided funding until June 30 2018.
The workshop runs for 6 hours with half an hour for registration prior to kick off at 9am. There is a participation fee of $75 pp. with a minimum of 15 people required. Catering is covered by BWFW but needs to be organised by the host. Handbooks and other material are provided to each participant and are organised by the deliverers. A flyer will be generated for distribution through your network and the MLA websites. There are hands on practicals throughout the day including assessment of bulls, developing a breeding objective and condition scoring.
