Lambs Alive brings together a large group of like-minded farmers who are keen to impact their lot in life...

...by producing more from less
The sheep industry is looking down the barrel at the lowest number of lambs marked in 100 years
The national breeding base is being challenged...but out of that challenge comes your greatest opportunity.
It's time to capitalise on the national lack of supply giving your more money in your pocket whilst lambs and mutton prices are near record. And guess what?

The benefits go much further than that.

When you join Lambs Alive, you will have the accountability and support necessary to deliver the flock productivity gains you are aspiring for.

Its easy to lose focus especially in todays environment.  But with the adoption of the approaches I teach you in Lambs Alive you'll have a repeatable, resilient, robust system that will allow you to do more than just survive...you will thrive.
Lambs Alive
will help you make the necessary decisions to take the action that will have the biggest impact on your farm and your family.
Our program is tailored to enterprises that Lamb at any time of the year, so it's not too late to join. Improvements are still possible to impact your marking rate!
P.S. Our past members have found it so valuable over 70% have renewed for another 12 months!
What is Lambs Alive?

ALL THE DETAILED INCLUSIONS
ANNUAL ONLINE COACHING

The education component of Lambs Alive is delivered online. The training is comprehensive and delivered in video format. Designed to run alongside the online and local community that you are a part of, the online training components are created with different internet access levels in mind. The training covers the following:

1
Stocktake
Using tools like scanning and condition scoring to take stock of where you are at for ewes, potential births, resources and create a target for where you want to be. Learn the subtleties of condition scoring and to fine tune processes that can improve your resource allocation, which is the key to producing more from less.
Mid / Late Pregnancy

Learn how to allocate your resources with precision to hit your lambing targets. For example, learn how to exploit your paddock feed, supplementary feed and current condition of ewes so your twin-bearing ewes lamb at least a third of a condition score higher than your singles.

2
3
Point Of Lambing

Attention to detail at this critical point can either make or break your lambing results, particularly for multiples. Based on your approach in mid/late pregnancy in conjunction with your lambing targets (pasture, condition score) identify optimum mob size and paddock allocation in order to reduce mismothering and deliver adequate feed, water, privacy and protection. By following best practice through pregnancy and point of lambing, 90% of lambs born can survive birth and go on to reach the lamb marking cradle.

Lamb Marking

Most people see lamb marking as simply counting how many you have to sell or keep. Yet improving your lamb survival rate year on year depends on implementing constant improvements based on the past seasons successes and areas for improvement. The true gold from lamb marking comes from the range of insights on the performance of your approach and your use of your resources. In this module, learn how to use this gold mine of information to grow to the next level of turning potential into performance (and profit).

Lamb Growth

The lactation period impacts both your lambs and your ewes. Driving your lamb growth rate allows you to flex better with your seasonal conditions. Simply the quicker you grow the quicker you sell. Learn the keys to growing lambs up to 300-400 grams per day, by better understanding the drivers of lamb growth rate, such as pasture quality, quantity and worm burden.  And contrary to popular belief that the ewe recovers most post weaning, recent research has shown that the management of the ewe prior to the weaning (ie during lactation) also impacts on next year’s production.

Weaning & Ewe Recovery

By 10 weeks of age, your lambs are getting more than 80% of their nutrition from sources other than their mother. It is also when your ewes will have the biggest spread of condition score. It’s not as simple as just ‘ripping the lamb from the ewe’. Preparation for weaning is critical and you will learn the key decisions that allow you to wean on time every time. The ewes are often forgotten at this stage and you will make a plan to better support  the ewes that have worked the hardest for you and get setup for next season.

Preparing For Next Season

Knowing the results from this season is the basis for improving practices and performance next season. It is the first time you can aggregate your overall production for the year (ewes per ha x scanning x lamb survival x lamb growth rate) and benchmark yourself against like-minded farmers. Using your detailed data, identify the greatest opportunities in your production system to focus on for next season. There is real urgency to perfect this. How many more lambings do you have left in your lifetime? It’s time to look in the mirror and what  you will see back is a farmer that is proud, informed and ready with their action plan for next season.

Leading Farmers Supporting & Guiding You
Creating strong learning communities has always been a key part of how I deliver training. Our industry experts / champions are a key part of inspiring farmers to go further.

Drawn from different areas across Australia, the Champions are applying best practices and achieving top results in regions and farm types similar to yours.

Our Champions are having a real crack on their farm and have a passion for involving and connecting with the wider producer community.

I feel very privileged to share with you the leaders who will support you in this space.
Online Community With Regional Support

Creating a team of like minded farmers around you, Lambs Alive brings together a large number of producers in an online community. Ask questions, support others, share knowledge and get feedback, the online community is the way you get to have ongoing access to some of the best minds in this game.

Additionally every month there will be a live support call with Jason and/or some of the leading farmers team.  These may be question & answer sessions, interviews, case studies or guest presenters who you can interact with live through an online video call (or audio if you prefer).

We also love it when a team comes together in person. Our Champions are drawn from the regions around Australia so you are connecting with people in like circumstance.

Facebook is the way that this community will connect with the use of Zoom for live support calls.  For some of you this may be a new experience and we have in place step by step support to guide you through using these technologies with the safety and right level of privacy for you.

Who is Jason Trompf?

The truth is, aside from being a husband to my wife Penny and father of 4...

I am my life's mission.

I have a vision of saving 5 million lambs. Lofty goal I know, but as you are aware the impact on the animals, the farmer and the supply chain as a whole is enormous.

My ethos has always been to produce more from less and guide farmers on how they can use their existing resources to make sustainable change across multiple points of the lambing season, both on my own farm and in the programs I am involved in.

One such program is Lifetime Ewe Management (LTEM) for which I was the lead author. LTEM coaches producers to understand and evaluate the impact of ewe nutrition on ewe and progeny performance. The program has now been delivered to over 4,000 farmers (representing 30% of the national flock) by myself and over 50 educators who I directly trained. Participants increased their number of lambs weaned by 8%, improving the whole-farm stocking rate by 10% and reducing ewe mortality by 30%.

Another program that you may associate me with is Bred Well Feed WellIt’s a one-day workshop for sheep producers that I co-developed which deliverers best practice breeding and feeding messages. As the primary deliverer of the program, it has now reached 4,500 producers that are breeding and managing their animals so that they are fit for farm and fit for market. Evaluation shows that participants who have increased marking rates solely due to BWFW have done so by 9%.

Having grown up on farm all my life, initially at Flowerdale Farm in Kinglake, then at the foothills of the Grampians between Dunkeld/Glenthompson, then onto Newlands at Apsley and finally the expansive plains of Casterton/Strathdownie, I have a life-long experience in the sheep and beef industries.

Along with my wife Penny and her parents, I now manage a significant livestock enterprise near Glenrowan in north east Victoria, with 3000 ewes and 250 cows.  This self-replacing high productivity operation provides me with a great practical background and a constant reality check with the challenges that all producers are facing on a day to day basis.  A key focus for the last 10 years or more has been to improve lamb survival, with our flock now achieving 90% survival rates of foetuses scanned.

What if I'm part of a group? Is there a discount or bonus training?

If you have a group of farmers in your region that would like to join, get in contact with me at jason@jasontrompf.com. We want you all to improve!

Is the program more suited to spring lambers?
It doesn't matter what time of the year you lamb, you have access to all of the trainings to use at the time that you need. Group calls will cover topics relevant to those that are on the call, so could relate to climate in Queensland as much as lambing in South Western Victoria.
