MERINOS – REALISING PERFORMANCE POTENTIAL

The AWI developed & funded RPP workshop is designed for wool producers aiming to lift lifetime performance from their Merino ewes. RPP identifies key practical actions for commercial enterprises to implement on farm to achieve this performance aim. RPP assists the commercial self-replacing Merino production sector in recognising & placing appropriate importance on the total lifetime productivity potential & value of their Merino ewes (fleece, meat & surplus stock) & 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 & provide pathways into other AWI supported training opportunities.

THE 5 KEY THEMES OF RPP
1. Understand ewe lifetime performance – passengers vs. performers
2. Lift ewe performance as a National Priority
3. Three key performance practices: – scan – condition score – wet/dry at marking
4. Turning potential to profit – lamb & wean well.
5. Strategies for success – management calendar
