Applications to attend Master Nutrition sheep workshop now open

NUTRITION has a long-term impact on flock performance – from embryo implantation onwards. There are various objectives related to ewe nutrition that ultimately impact flock productivity and profitability, such as optimising conception rates and embryo survival, as well as increasing lamb numbers and improving survival rates.

If you would like to gain information and expand your knowledge on this topic, complete an application form, by 12pm 29 July 2019, for a chance to attend a Master Nutrition Sheep workshop. You can do this by visiting the Farming Connect website: www.gov.wales/farmingconnect

By attending this workshop, you will increase your understanding of the benefits of improved nutrition for in-lamb ewes.
