We talked about solutions from Turkey and solutions that were bought from other countries 7 SheepNet countries, and which solution we took to try.
Firstly we grouped the farmers and like a carrousel system introduced the solution. We had 5 person per group within farmers. Afterwards, we validated those solutions with our STWG and how we can get best results from those solutions. The solutions were grouped as; reproduction, gestation, Lamb mortality related to management issues and lamb mortality related to animals.
Next topic were the “tips&tricks” and we have explained them what” Tips&Tricks” means and which options we have collected to represent in the next TNSW which will be held in Spain. We have selected with the help of short videos and photos and voted among them. First 10 tips&tricks have been determined and revised for the last time to be represented in Spain.
The last remarks were about the social networking. New members were registered to the Sheepnet platform and a detailed presentation how to use the platform have been realized. Twitter and facebook media tools were also introduced and showed them how to use it. A Short introduction about the next TNWS in Spain have announced and finished the meeting.
