This webinar, delivered by Mackinnon Senior Consultant John Webb Ware, take a closer look at the circumstances where producers may or may not wean their cross bred lambs. John distils a raft of peer reviewed research into simple messages to help the audience understand important considerations like duration of lactation, lamb pasture intake and the growth performance of early and late weaned lambs under different pasture conditions. John talks expansively about the broader issues of pasture growth curves, stocking rate, pasture utilisation and pasture mixes and their impact on the decision to wean. Target market will also affect the weaning decision, and the producers ability to get ewes back into suitable condition in time for the next seasons joining. Review this webinar to grow your knowledge around the important issues of juggling high quality pasture resources in the spring for optimising profitability.
