Livestock Nutrition Workshops were held across the SA Arid Lands region last week, covering livestock health, nutrition and productivity. Almost 50 people attended one of four workshops at Coober Pedy, Marree, Beltana and Yunta which were supported by the SA Arid Lands Board and the National Landcare Program. Presenter San Jolly provided information about ruminant nutrition and the nutritional value of rangeland plant species. Trent Scholz from PIRSA Animal Health also spoke about disease management and monitoring programs such as abattoir surveillance.
SA Arid Lands Pastoral Land Assessment Officers Kirrily Blaylock and Augie Facelli walked participants through different types of vegetation, identifying key plant species and discussing the importance of plant diversity, condition and palatability.
A big thank you to those that attended the workshops and for those that couldn’t make it, we aim to have information from the workshops to share in the near future.
If you would like more information please contact your local Community Engagement Officer or Melissa Horgan on 8648 5300.

Scientists from the Arthur Rylah Institute recently spent a week monitoring nutrient levels flowing down the Snowy after the significant environmental water release from Jindabyne Dam. The project, administered by us and funded by the Victorian State Government, is looking to determine what positive effect the nutrients are having on the wetlands and estuary.

Dan Stoessel from ARI said “If the nutrients are not coming down at the appropriate time then you don’t get all of the ongoing benefits for the fish so it’s important that these events occur, especially in the Spring.”
