BIGG is set to host a webinar on the need for continued feeding despite recent rain, as well as a lamb autopsy workshop later in the month.

Recent rain events across the state have been welcomed, but the need for continued feeding still exists.

This will be the topic of a Barossa Improved Grazing Group webinar being run at 7:30pm tonight (Thursday) presented by Deb Scammell, Talking Livestock.

Ms Scammell will talk through what the late rain will mean for pasture growth and pasture availability, and if and when there will be adequate green feed to meet ewe requirements.

The 'who what when where and how' of feed budgeting and feeding sheep will be discussed.

Also on BIGG's agenda is a lamb autopsy workshop, to be held at Keyneton Station on June 29, from 9-11:30am.

At the workshop, Gordon Refshauge from NSW DPI will provide a practical demonstration on lamb survival including mismothering, predation and dystocia, while a research project on condition scoring and pregnancy status of twin bearing ewes will also be on the program.

Producers are invited to bring along their own lambs for autopsy.

RSVPs are due on Friday 25th June to Deb Scammell, 0407 790 622 or deb@talkinglivestock.com.au
