B+LNZ On-farm Body Condition Scoring and Feedsmart Workshops: Glen Murray and Te Kuiti

Event category
Workshop

Join us to learn about Body Condition Scoring in ewes prior to mating. Minimizing body condition loss between lambing and mating and having animals at target BCS has been shown to enhance reproductive parameters. 

In this session, you will learn why BCS is important, when you should do it, where the gains are made in doing so, and how to BCS. We will also cover feed requirements of a ewe throughout the year, tools to calculate feed requirements, pasture assessment, and measuring. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn more about these key tools and how they can benefit your flock!

Biosecurity

When attending a B+LNZ field day please ensure you have clean footwear and vehicles are not carrying fresh muck or vegetation. This will help reduce the risk of spreading weeds, pests and diseases onto our host farms and across our country. To stay clean, we need to be clean.
