Lifetime Wool - more lambs, better wool, healthy ewes
 

Recommendations & Guidelines

Lifetimewool is developing a series of guidelines and recommendations for managing ewe flocks throughout the year. These guidelines have some specific differences from region to region, particularly due to pasture growth and climatic conditions.

Lifetimewool has generated a number of recommendations that are based on results from it's plot and farm scale experimental work in agricultural areas across all states (excluding Qld).

Please select the region that best suits your enterprise to access ewe management targets and specific recommendations. If you hold your mouse over a region, the name of the region will be displayed in a box and you can click on it to take you to the relevant page.
