Northern beef producers seeking insights to help boost the reproductive performance of their breeding herds now have access to new reference tools developed by Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA).
Four new ‘Tips & Tools’ publications have been released, designed to help producers identify issues in their breeding herds and provide ways to address them.
MLA Project Manager – Research & Development Grassfed Beef, Dr Nigel Tomkins, said the Reproductive Performance Tips & Tools have been developed based on findings and insights from extensive northern beef projects, such as CashCow.
“The latest findings are being provided to beef producers through the new Tips & Tools series, presented as short, easy to read, step-by-step reference guides,” Dr Tomkins said.
“The ultimate goal of every beef breeding operation is to produce one well-grown weaner per breeder, per year. One of the major findings from MLA research has been that reproductive loss is having a large impact on the performance of northern beef herds.
“New research is focusing on reproductive performance as a major priority.”
