Livestock Production - Elders Rural Services

“Just as a cropping enterprise engages an agronomist to improve productivity, a livestock enterprise engages a livestock production advisor to do the same. We have seen constant improvement within our livestock enterprise. Some of the notable improvements include achieving our highest ever lambing percentage and improvement in the quality and condition of our stock.”

Tim and Kerry Hill, Eyre Peninsula, South Australia.

Livestock production consulting in action

Phil Cook* from the Eyre Peninsula has been working with Livestock Production Consultant, Raymond Whillas for four years.

When Phil initially started working with Raymond, he was sitting at 95 per cent lambing but knew this wasn’t the best possible result for his operation.

After following Raymond’s specialist advice Phil had a 138 per cent scanning rate three years in a row.

This season, Phil has marked a mob of lambs that had 177 ewes with 250 lambs, a lambing percentage of 141 per cent.

Phil is incredibly happy with the results and will continue to use the advice from Raymond to increase the productivity of his ewes.
