    Realising Performance Potential - FREE Workshop

    (9 am – 3 pm)836 Milvale Road, Young, NSW 2594

    ABOUT RPP
    The AWI developed and funded RPP workshop is designed for apparel wool producers aimed at lifting lifetime performance from their Merino ewes. RPP identifies key practical actions for commercial enterprises to implement on farm to achieve this performance aim.

    The RPP workshop was piloted extensively in 2016 and feedback obtained from wool producers during the pilot phase has helped fine tune the program for national roll out in 2017.

    RPP assists the commercial self-replacing Merino production sector in recognising and placing appropriate importance on the total lifetime productivity potential and value of their Merino ewes (fleece, meat, surplus stock) and aims to achieve a minimum weaning rate of 95% from Merino joinings.

    RPP is designed to complement the AWI-funded Lifetime Ewe Management (LTEM) Program and provide pathways into other AWI supported training opportunities.
