Tips for live export preparation at LambEx 2018

Lambex-2

LambEx 2018 is running from August 5-7 in Perth and celebrates all that is great about Australia’s sheep and lamb industries.

There are still a few places available on the LambEx 2018 informative and interactive post-conference tours.

The On Farm Innovation Tour includes a visit to Harmony Agriculture & Food Co’s new facility at Woottating.

There are limited spaces remaining for the one-day On Farm Innovation tour, while the two-day Applied Research tour is fully booked.

There are still about 65 places available for the complimentary event – Optimal Preparation for Live Export.

Tristan O’Brien will showcase the innovative system at his Northam property, which includes lamb finishing on standing vetch and a new commercial poultry operation.

The tour finishes with a visit to Mount Ronan White Suffolk and Maternals hosted by Guy Bowen and daughter Elise, who will discuss their breeding program before a presentation is made by the Murdoch research team.

The Optimal Preparation for Live Export event will be held at Wellard’s Rural Export Facility at Baldivis and is designed to provide attendees with the latest information on preparing livestock for live trade, including:

  • Tips for live export preparation – what you should be doing and why
  • Government regulations and legal obligations for producers
  • Common preparation pitfalls and ways to avoid them
  • Cost and impact of sending livestock out of spec and ill-prepared for export
  • Vendor Declarations – unnecessary paperwork or essential advice for live export
  • The importance of accurate and honest information

The forum will also host discussion on how to minimise the impact and frequency of problems including sheep inanition, pinkeye and scabby mouth.

To wrap up the event, a hands-on session showcasing optimal vaccination technique will be held in conjunction with discussion about the importance of vaccination, its timing and impact, and how it can help to increase monetary return.

Exporters, researchers and technical experts will be on-hand to answer any questions throughout the day.

The event will be hosted by the Meat and Livestock Australia LiveCorp Livestock Export Program on Wednesday, August 8 from 8:30am to 4pm. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
