Our Spring 2023 launch edition of Livestock Now is packed with content and analysis covering outlooks for sheep and cattle from independent livestock analyst Simon Quilty, as well as field commentary from our state livestock managers and stud stock managers. You’ll also find informative tech pieces relating to dairy, rumen and weaning topics which aim to provide sound advice on timely issues.

Gerard and Lucy Gallagher of ‘Tarrabah’ outside Tamworth have engaged Elders Senior Livestock Production Specialist Adam Turnbull to assist with tailoring an early weaning program to suit their operation.
Take a look at the process below.
