Join Dr Susan Robertson through an online Zoom meeting to get some tips and tricks on confinement-feeding pregnant ewes.

Susan joined Charles Sturt University as a researcher in 2006, and while all things sheep are of interest, she has a particular interest in improving the reproductive rate of sheep. She has published numerous studies including lamb survival, embryo mortality, sheep health, sheep production systems, simulation modelling of sheep/pasture cropping systems, and most recently Managing Breeding Ewes in Containment Areas; A Guide for Producers.
Tune in while having your morning coffee as Dr Susan Robertson covers the following topics,
- Confining ewes during late pregnancy, the risk and management
- Adapting ewes into and out of confinement
