Increasing lambing success at Blackall – a producer case study

The Banks family are passionate sheep people and have made significant management changes to increase lambing success and to lift the overall profitability of the enterprise.  Some of these changes have included scanning to determine where losses were occurring, splitting ewes into mobs of singles and twins, culling unproductive ewes, supplementary feeding and using electronic identification to analyse flock reproductive data. As a result of this (and even with wild dogs) lambing percentages have increased up to 25 per cent.
