The workshops aim to instil and improve animal husbandry practices directly related to animal health and welfare in Australian feedlots. This workshop differs greatly from the Animal Welfare Officer Training and is not accredited. 
 

All feedlot staff, particularly staff members who are handling cattle on a day-to-day basis, will benefit from attending this one-day workshop. The workshop will also benefit those involved as suppliers to the feedlot industry. For example, feeder cattle suppliers will gain an insight as to why feedlots pay premiums for well-prepared cattle and how to achieve these premiums.

COURSE 12 

ALFA's MPM Program is designed to provide lot feeders and industry professionals with a deeper understanding of how to manage a modern feedlot business.

The MPM Program was established in 2008. The Program now boasts a strong alumni network of over 100 lot feeders and industry professionals, many of whom are now prominent industry leaders.

 

The Program is run annually over several months, delivered through 4 x 2-day training sessions to a maximum of 10-15 participants. The group gathers three times in Sydney/Brisbane for the sessions delivered by a range of facilitators; the final session is a feedlot tour, where participants hear from Feedlot Managers who have graduated from the Program.

Registrations open annually in June and close August.
