The Lifetime Ewe Management program runs over the 12 month weaning to weaning cycle.
The timing of each meeting is linked to critical stages in the management of the ewe's reproductive cycle. All sessions involve a visit to each participant's farm and focus on condition scoring, pasture assessing and feed budgeting activities that are practical and applicable to the farm business.
The program also focuses on improving producer understanding of the influences ewe nutrition has on the performance of the ewe and her progeny.
The full cost of the program is $2,150 per participant, with the Australian Wool Innovation subsidy for eligible wool growers of $1,165, the cost reduces to $985 per individual.
