Greg Brown, a nutritionist from Riverina Stockfeeds, Northern Tablelands Local Land Services Livestock Officers and District Vets, and Rural Financial Counsellors will be available and farmers are encouraged to come along with questions.

“Local Land Services Livestock Officers and Vets are currently getting a lot of enquiries about feeding requirements and animal health needs due to the current season. All staff are trying to provide simple and practical advice and support,” said Northern Tablelands Local Land Services Livestock Officer, Brent McLeod.

“We are holding these animal nutrition sessions so we can bring producers together and share information on the best options for managing livestock in these tough seasonal conditions. Producers are strongly encouraged to attend the workshops but if this is not possible, feel free to contact your nearest LLS office.”

The workshops are free – but please RSVP to assist with catering on 02 6732 8800 or Jason.siddell@lls.nsw.gov.au
