Finalists from the region include Vanya Cullen – who has once again been nominated for a Winemaker of the Year award – making it the second time she has received such an accolade this year.

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.

Can’t turn a blind eye: Added sugar could be unmissable

The nation's health ministers have ordered a review to consider making it compulsory for packaged foods and drinks to carry labels quantifying the amount of added sugar they contain. The Australia and New Zealand Ministerial Forum on Food Regulation chaired by Tasmanian senator Richard Colbeck specifically wants foods standards authorities to look at a “pictorial approach” to labelling sugary drinks. KEEP UP-TO-DATE WITH HEALTH NEWS HERE The move would potentially see Coca-Cola and other soft drinks slapped with demands to display pictures of multiple teaspoons of sugar on their labels. The idea is more broadly aimed at making it easier for consumers to distinguish between naturally occurring sugars and added sugars so they can weigh up how good or bad a product is for their health. “The forum agreed to request that Food Standards Australia New Zealand review nutrition labelling for added sugars, noting that the option to quantify added sugars in the nutrition information panel be..

"The forum agreed to request that Food Standards Australia New Zealand review nutrition labelling for added sugars, noting that the option to quantify added sugars in the nutrition information panel best met the desired outcome," according to a communique released by the forum. "Furthermore, the forum agreed that a pictorial approach applied to sugary beverages/sugar-sweetened beverages warrants further consideration, along with other options, pending the response to the HSR five-year review." READ ALSO The ministers agreed that consumers should have access to food labelling that provides "adequate contextual information about sugars" to enable them to make more informed choices. They further agreed that any label changes should be accompanied by education. Public Health Association of Australia chief executive Terry Slevin has told the Sydney Morning Herald the labelling of sugars on packaged foods and drinks needs to be enacted. Mr Slevin says the initiative should be incorporated into the calculation of health star ratings, something which had been recommended by an independent health star rating review.
