Optimising lamb performance: Lancashire

Past Event - booking closed

29 August 2019

2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Hammerton Hall, Clitheroe, Lancashire


Join us at the AHDB optimising lamb performance event, hosted by Mr Geordie Parker at Hammerton Hall near Slaidburn. Lamb performance can be impacted by many factors. The genetics of any animal will put a ceiling on its performance. It’s therefore important to raise that ceiling as high as possible by selecting the best rams for your system. Young lambs are also the most efficient on your farm in terms of feed conversion. So, correct nutrition delivered in the most cost effective way will help to maximise growth rates, decrease finishing times and increase profitability.


This event covers topics including

  • Practical ram selection – choosing the correct ram for your system – Emma Steele, Signet Breeding
  • Optimising performance through nutrition – grazing, forage crops and creep – James Hadwin, independent consultant


The event will also be an opportunity to find out more about AHDB’s new lamb promotional campaign – Lamb Hits You In The Chops.
