Post Weaning Management Strategies for Cattle Herds

Tuesday 27 September, 10.30am to 2.00pm, Willalooka

Lunch provided.


Guest Speaker - Dr Lachlan Strohfeldt, Protein Production Vets

Dr Stohfeldt focuses on creating confident cattle in a labour efficient way. Important to that is timing, technique and an understanding of how stressed animals interact and learn best. During the day Lachlan will discuss what cattle crave – working around the principle that every handling influences the next one. This will lead into the yard demonstrations where he will explain some of the processes.



  • handling and educating weaners and how this impacts on weaner health and welfare and their productivity
  • how to minimise stress by correctly handling and educating weaners
  • practical methods to start implementation on farm
  • why it's important to keep heifers growing for long term production
  • the value of educating heifers at weaning to make their lifetime handling a breeze, for us and them
