Optimising Lamb Performance: N Yorkshire

Past Event - booking closed

1 October 2019

10:00 AM - 2:30 PM

Low Swainby Farm, Burneston, Bedale, North Yorkshire


Come along to the AHDB Optimising Lamb Performance event, hosted by Joe Clarke at Low Swainby Farm near Bedale. 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 cover topics including

  • Practical lamb selection – choosing the correct ram for your system – Emma Steele, Signet Breeding
  • Lunch
  • Optimising performance through nutrition – grazing, forage crops and creep – Liz Genever, Independent Sheep Consultant
  • Farm Walk
  • Summary and finish


The event will also be an opportunity to find out more about AHDB’s new lamb promotional campaign – “Lamb, hits you in the chops”
