Get the most from your sheep flock
Howard Martin and Co. is hosting a sheep graziers’ information breakfast on Wednesday, December 14 to help you make the most of your stock this summer.
A series of short presentations will take place at the Berrigan Showgrounds from 6.30am to 8.30am.
The presentations include fly and lice solutions, drench and worm control, and nutrition for dry feed and stubble management.
Guest speakers include Phil Candy from Coopers Animal Health, James Waugh from Howard Martin and Co. and Ancare’s Mark Beard.
Farmers are encouraged to bring in a fresh manure sample for a free test for ‘Barbers Poll’, which is a concern this summer following a wet season.
The test takes 15 minutes, is a free service and farmers will be contacted with the results.
Mr Waugh said the information morning would be ‘‘short and sharp’’, allowing farmers to get back to harvest.
A delicious breakfast of bacon, eggs, coffee, tea and orange juice will be served from 6am and RSVPS are essential for catering purposes.
