Breeder management for improved land condition

15 Jun 2021 - 15 Jun 2021
Pinacle Station, west of Laura on Cape York

Find out how to run a smaller, more productive herd for more grass all year round, reduced erosion and improved land condition with Dr Geoffry Fordyce, Senior Research Fellow [Centre for Animal Science], Queensland Alliance for Agriculture & Food Innovation (QAAFI)

Dr Fordyce has four decades of experience conducting research into north Australia’s beef industry and applying the outcomes of this research to real beef businesses. He has studied many aspects of both female and bull fertility, from detailed physiological research through to the economics of application of research outcomes to industry practice.

Topics to be discussed at the event include:

❖ Performance verses production of breeding cattle
❖ ‘Is my herd up to scratch and what can be improved?’
❖ Common breeding herd problems and effective solutions ❖ Getting bull power right
❖ The science behind weaning, heifers, and calf husbandry ❖ Applying genetic improvement to breeding herds
❖ And answers to your questions!
