Beef + Lamb of­fers ad­vice

Matamata Chronicle - - Rural Delivery -

New re­sources to help make sheep and beef farm­ing sim­pler, more ef­fi­cient and more prof­itable are avail­able from Beef + Lamb New Zealand.

A new bull-se­lec­tion book looks at what to con­sider when buy­ing bulls this sea­son.

Top­ics in­clude breed­ers, breed­ing goals and ob­jec­tives, trans­port and the en­vi­ron­ment.

A fact sheet is avail­able on con­di­tion scor­ing for beef cows. Publi­ca­tions for sheep farm­ing in­clude an up­dated guide to hogget mat­ing and preg­nancy feed­ing ad­vice. The on­line lamb­ing cal­cu­la­tor en­abled farm­ers to see at a click how their busi­ness was match­ing up in this area, Beef + Lamb New Zealand said.

Other publi­ca­tions in­clude ad­vice on fer­tiliser use and guide­lines for farm fenc­ing.
