Terry Sim, June 9, 2021

SHEEP and goat farmers in western New South Wales can now access the first Pastoral Poddy podcasts covering reproduction and general management issues.

Western Local Land Services has worked with local landholders, ag advisors and industry representatives to deliver a professional and insightful podcast series on a range of animal health topics with a western NSW focus.

The first five Pastoral Poddy episodes cover:

  • Pregnancy scanning
  • Pre-lambing nutrition
  • Ewe reproduction strategies
  • Weaner management
  • Farming goats

Team leader of agriculture, Gemma Turnbull said the Pastoral Poddy team is working on the next five podcast, which will be available later this year.

“It’s been an interesting process speaking with so many knowledgeable people who have only been too happy to share their insights and experiences.

“Everyone involved is really pleased with the final product and we hope everyone enjoys listening to the episodes as much as we enjoyed developing them,” Ms Turnbull said.

The Pastoral Poddy is free to listen to on all major podcast apps including Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify – simply search for ‘Pastoral Poddy’ on your usual podcast provider.

To access and listen to the episodes, or get further information, visit www.lls.nsw.gov.au/pastoral-poddy, or contact a member of Western Local Land Services Agricultural team on 1300 795 299.
