Calf loss in beef breeding herds is a global problem causing reduced live weight production and lower profitability. Large studies in recent times have shown the major risk factors to be very different to those that cause calf loss in intensive or temperate region cattle systems.

Join us for this research update, featuring respected Australian specialists to discuss the opportunities available to manage cows for improved reproductive performance and productivity in northern Australia.

Wednesday 8 November 2023 between 8:00 am and 3:00 pm.

The venue is open from 8:00 am for an 8:30 am start. 

Tea & coffee, morning tea and a light lunch will be provided.

The event is free to attend but requires registration for catering purposes.
