· New and improved Sheep Condition Scoring app for WA producers launched at Wagin Woolorama today
· App helps monitor and assess the condition of sheep for best performance
The McGowan Government is backing productivity improvements in the Western Australian sheep industry, with the development of a new and improved Sheep Condition Scoring app.
The app, developed by the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, enables producers to monitor the condition of sheep and readily access information to manage sheep nutrition.
This helps producers determine if sheep are in the best condition for joining and lambing - making it a key tool for this time of the year.
The updated app allows users to add multiple records to a mob and add multiple mobs, as well as calculate averages, generate graphs and email raw data for more analysis. It also features instructional videos and explanations on how to condition score.
Condition scoring is an easy and accurate measure of estimating the nutritional wellbeing of sheep and is the best method for monitoring pregnant and lactating ewes. Condition score should be used in combination with the available pasture to run feed budgets.
