Grazier Alert! Don’t miss this opportunity to join John Bertram and Alan Laing, leaders in the field of genetic gain and reproduction in the beef industry.
Combining the latest in research and development with practical know-how, this three day course, from May 22 to May24, is designed to integrate new knowledge into your breeding program.
Reef Catchments is hosting the three day Better Bull Selection Course – Breeding Better Profits, and can offer a $200 subsidy to attending landholders to reduce workshop costs.
John Bertram is an expert in bull fertility, breeding, genetics, and herd bull selection. He is well known for his extension work providing guidance and technical advice to landholders, veterinary services, and industry bodies across Australia.
His observations have shown that too many graziers buy their bulls based on how they look.
A pre-purchase bull fertility assessment should include appearance (structure, feet etc), microscopic test for semen quality and morphology, a detailed examination of his genetic merit and pedigree information.
We encourage interested graziers to secure their spot quickly. Registration closes at close of business on Monday 13 May.
We need 15 producers to ensure this workshop runs and places are limited to 20.
Cost: $500 per person for the three days
Date: Wednesday 22 May to Friday 24 May
Location: 908 Mt Ossa/ Seaforth Road, 40 minutes north of Mackay
Register: Online (see above) or contact Juliane Kasiske on 0488 730 021 by Monday 13 May.
Benefits of buying better bulls? There’s more than you can swing a cow at.
Attendees, please note that you will be invoiced by John Bertram directly post-workshop to reimburse the $500 course fee.
