Show Notes

Welcome back to the Head Shepherd podcast. This week we have Todd Burger from the Western Districts of Victoria. Todd farms his merino sheep a little differently.

After being frustrated with the lack of maternal behavior in his ewes, he decided to do something different. Todd intensively manages around 700 of his 7,000 ewes around lambing time. This means shedding up at night, temporary shelters and more.

Mark and Todd cover the new genetics and AI that has been implemented recently, and the changes that has brought to Todds farming business. 

We hope this podcast gets you thinking!
