Cowaramup BMX track closed for upgrades

Cowaramup BMX Track will be closed this month to allow for track redesign and upgrades. The track upgrade will occur within the existing BMX track footprint and include additional roller style jumps, and more technical elements to keep the interest of older skilled participants, while also catering for all age groups and lower experience levels. The track will remain a public track shared by Cowaramup BMX members, the wider community, school groups, tourists and visitors to region. “Cowaramup BMX Club believe that this is a much needed project and has been a long vision for the future development of the BMX Club to ensure continued memberships, to increase longevity of the existing facility for all users, to encourage physical activity, and to upskill existing riders beyond what the track can currently offer,” said BMX Committee Member Nicole Lincoln.

Uni student’s survey aims to help boost lamb survival

Sheep producers across western NSW are being encouraged to participate in an online survey that investigates vaccination and nutritional supplementation of sheep. Former Peak Hill resident and current Charles Sturt University student, Kayla Kopp, is conducting the investigation as part of her studies. Ms Kopp's PhD at Charles Sturt's School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences is investigating the nutritional supplementation of lambing ewes and sheep producers are being asked to take part in the survey. The survey takes approximately 15 minutes and participants remain anonymous.

"One in five lambs born in Australia die within days of birth, costing the industry over $1 billion each year," Professor Friend said. "Our research aims to better understand how those losses occur and to develop knowledge and tools that will help producers improve animal health and boost lamb survival." READ ALSO: Walgett's Jill Roughley, runs her property with guts and determination The survey is available online (www.surveymonkey.com/r/ lambsurvey) and sheep producers are invited to take part in the research until Saturday, August 31. Participants must be producers currently involved in the sheep industry either as farm owners or managers in NSW; must have ewes lambing on their property annually; and must have at least 50 sheep on their property. The survey builds on Miss Kopp's earlier field studies focused on nutritional supplementation and milk production. Data from the study will contribute to research on animal welfare, animal nutrition and sheep production.
