Ash Wachtel, Tailored Livestock Consulting (TLC)

Ashlee is the principal consultant at Tailored Livestock Consulting, based at Robe in the Southeast. She has 11 years’ experience in the livestock industry, after graduating from a Bachelor of Agricultural Sciences at the University of Adelaide. Ash predominantly focusses on intensive and pasture-based sheep and beef production systems, to improve feed efficiency, health of the animal and the amount of saleable product produced. This year’s seasonal challenge has meant most of her consulting has been planning, budgeting, and managing containment feeding, lambing/calving requirements and early weaning.
