  • Update - Murdoch University Animal Science Students Research Trial

Murdoch University Animal Science Project

Milne Feeds are pleased to be supporting up and coming industry professionals currently studying Animal Science at Murdoch University.  The recent Animal Science Project is aimed at providing students with invaluable, hands-on experience with different feeds and feeding conditions.  Learning to manage sheep growth rates and body condition has proven educational for all students.  Milne donated the feeds for the project.  We are looking forward to the final report from the students on what they saw and found. Below is an update on the findings; 

Lambs fed an optimal finishing diet (LambGro) had greater average daily gains compared to lambs fed sub-optimal finishing diet (maintenance ration of EasyEwe) for an 8 week feeding period. Additionally, for those lambs from dams with a higher Post Weaning Weight ASBV were almost twice as likely to fully express their genetic potential for growth when fed an optimal diet in comparison to a sub-optimal diet

Milne Feeds will continue to prioritise sponsoring Research & Development, particularly in fostering the growth of the next generation of animal professionals.
