A NSW producer has taken out the $19,000 Multimin Challenge after lifting conception rates to 93 per cent in his beef herd.

More than 40 producers competed in three monthly programs to trial the benefits of Multimin.

The challengers were then narrowed down to eight finalists with four awarded prizes.

Tim Reid from Melon Pastoral at Roslyn took out the top price including a 12-month supply of products and an overseas study tour.

Multimin's marketing manager, Dr Jerry Liu, said the winners were selected based on the quality of their treatment program, sharing of their results, collaboration with Virbac technical experts and engagement within the Facebook group.

Mr Reid recorded interesting insights into weaner management, and surrounding Multimin's effect on conception rates.

"What I read from this is that giving Multimin is a must pre joining and the Multimin given at weaning is not only a must for animal health and reduced incidence of disease at weaning but assists with getting the heifers ready for joining," he said.

Following closely as the second-place winner was Emma Patterson from Bonnydale QLD Black Simmentals in Kingaroy, Queensland.

Through the use of Multimin, Emma documented a 10 per cent increase in artificial insemination conception and 6pc increase in embryo conception rates.

Jodie Solomons secured her spot as the third-place winner, hailing from Wye in South Australia on her property Donovans Dairy.

Jodie experienced significant health benefits with her dairy calves after treating with Multimin.

The people's choice winner was Brenda King of Glenfern Grazing Co. at Glenfern QLD.
