Registrations Open - Animal Health & Welfare Workshop

Registrations are now open for ALFA’s Animal Health & Welfare workshop which will be delivered online over three sessions this November/December.

The workshop aims to instil and improve animal husbandry practices directly related to animal health and welfare in Australian feedlots. This workshop will benefit all feedlot staff, particularly staff members who are handling cattle on a day-to-day basis. As well as those outside industry, including those in the supply chain, especially feeder cattle suppliers who will gain an insight as to why feedlots pay premiums for well-prepared cattle and how to achieve these premiums.

Based on the positive feedback from our last online workshop we have again scheduled the sessions to be ideal for feedlots to host a team ‘Lunch & Learn’ type training session; they are scheduled for Wednesday lunchtime.
