In order to make the most of the time and money invested in breeding your herd, you must carefully plan your weaning strategy. This will help reduce health issues, minimise weight loss and ensure your weanlings are in healthy condition when sold or housed.

The first step is to identify a weaning date. If you are selling your weanlings, you must decide what market to target. Most farmers selling weanlings will target some of them at a special show and sale.
