Feeding Sheep in Confinement 1 CPD Points


Due to severe drought, the Coonamble district in NSW, fed sheep from mid-2017 until early 2020 which saw the vast majority of sheep producers in the area build and use confinement feeding areas. This webinar presented by Dr Jillian Kelly will cover the nutritional and animal health requirements of sheep in confinement. We will also talk about how to approach a veterinary visit to a sheep feedlot (of which there were plenty during this period!) including what to look for at the feedlot, what questions to ask the producer and what samples to take to get a diagnosis. We will also talk about the most commonly diagnosed diseases, and simple ways to fix them.

Dr Jillian Kelly
Jillian Kelly grew up at Coonamble in NSW. As a child her father was a shearer and her mother took sheep on the road droving during the 80s drought with Jill as a baby, so maybe she was always destined for a career that involved sheep! She graduated from the University of Sydney in 2005. She worked at a variety of private veterinary practices in Australia and the UK before becoming a District Vet in 2011. Jillian’s main role is to deliver herd and flock diagnostic and production services to landholders in the Coonamble district and strategic biosecurity and surveillance to the NSW State Government. Her main interests include upskilling farmers to run better, more productive farm, while at the same time improving vet-client relationships to improve notifiable disease reporting and achieve better animal welfare outcomes. She also loves a good post mortem! Jillian achieved her ANZCVS memberships in 2015 in Animal Nutrition (Ruminant) which came in very handy during the long and severe drought the area experienced. She is more recently, a host of the podcast about ag-life Seeds for Success. In her spare time, Jillian enjoys time on her farm, campdrafting, painting, contributing to her local community and watching the grass grow.
