 Top tips for pre sire selection and how to review herd performance post calving

 About the benefits of involving the farm team in making breeding decisions.
 To have confidence in your medium and long-term breeding goals


The workshop strictly limited to a maximum of 25 attendees running from 10.30am to 2pm. Aimed at farmers and their staff who are involved with breeding decisions for the herd.
