The Kiwis are coming!

After many visits to New Zealand for their annual Coopworth Conference, Palmerston Coopworths are very excited to be hosting the Kiwis for this years’ conference here in Tasmania. We have 30 delegates from both New Zealand and Australia visiting for 3 days from 31 May to 2 June, and have put together a diverse program showcasing a range of agricultural enterprises in northern Tasmania, including Greenvale Pastoral, Eastfield Lamb, Landfall, Ashgrove Cheese and Tamar Ridge vineyard. The group will be visiting Campbell Town Show on Friday morning, so if you’re about say g’day and make them welcome. A big thanks to our Conference supporters – Gallagher, Zoetis and Coopworth Genetics Australia.

Stud ewe selection 2017

Pre-joining preparation this year included giving the stud ewe flock a thorough review and culling out any animals with poor confirmation, poor figures or poor wool. Terry Connell provided some valuable outside scrutiny in this task. A pre-joining adult weight will be obtained for those ewes kept in the stud flock.
