Wool Stocktake : AWI Annual Report 2007-08
WOOL PRODUCTION 2007/2008 Making more from sheep A new guide to maximising production and profitability A new management tool – Making More From Sheep – has been developed with the input of nearly 250 leading sheep producers and technical experts to help sheep producers increase their productivity, profitability and overall satisfaction with their farming businesses. AWI and Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) joined forces to develop this best practice management package. Released in January 2008, Making More From Sheep is a comprehensive guide based around 11 modules that cover all aspects of sheep management and production. In one handy reference the Making More From Sheep manual captures the experiences of leading sheep producers and technical specialists, together with the latest recommendations from research and development. It is intended to help users identify and improve the 20 per cent of 26 ANNUAL AWI 07/08 decisions that have 80 per cent of the impact on business profitability and risk control. Since January 2008, over 2,000 producers have taken up the manual. The various modules in the manual are also available to be downloaded through the dedicated website www. makingmorefromsheep.com.au which has had approximately 15,000 individual visitors to date. The manual aims to consolidate, for sheep producers, in one easy-to-use guide, a complete range of practices to reduce the cost of production on their farms.
