Lifetime Ewe Management (LTEM)

Register your interest

Setting your ewes up for success.

If you live near Moulamein, Maude, Kyalite or in the Balranald area and are interested in improving the performance of your sheep enterprise then Lifetime Ewe Management (LTEM) is the answer for you.

AWI & RIST’s Lifetime Ewe Management (LTEM) course aims to increase producers’ understanding of the influence of ewe nutrition and management on overall reproduction rates and lamb and ewe survival. Producers develop the skills to manage their ewes to achieve condition score targets and explore the economics of supplementary feeding and pasture management to review stocking rates.

LTEM groups meet six times in the annual sheep calendar during a period of 12 months. The course is very hands-on, being based in the sheep yards, shearing sheds and paddocks of participating woolgrowers, which enables participants to share and learn from one another. For more details visit
