AgResearch Winter Grazing Seminars 

Delivered by AgResearch in partnership with MPIs Primary Industry Advisory services, three seminars were given that were designed to provide vets, farm consultants and other rural advisers with the most up to date information on winter grazing. These seminars focused on the relationship between animal welfare, the environment and winter grazing. The first was held in November 2020 in Invercargill and the following two in Invercargill and Mosgiel on 11 & 12 May 2021.

 The seminar presenters covered various aspects of winter grazing including:

→ Animal welfare science

→ Environmental science

→ Animal nutrition and social licence

→ Regulatory requirements from a regional council perspective
